Does anyone really believe that it was Tony’s intent to hurt someone on the track? I’ve seen Tony throw his helmet. Specifically at Matt Kenseth while Matt was in his RACE car. If I remember correctly, that was a gesture of frustration not an attempt to hurt Matt. I’m so sorry for everyone but all racers know racing is a dangerous sport. Don’t forget that. As far as racing sprint cars it’s probably true the other drivers get pumped when a NASCAR star races with them. Maybe too pumped and they get out of their vehicle.

Grow up people. his was a tragic accident. Why do you feel you can hurt and bully people? This guy will NEVER be the same EVER! How sad that anybody would think his was done on purpose. God bless all involved. Sad. That’s all.

So hitting Kevin Ward Jr so hard it made him swerve and ended the race for him wasn’t good enough so Tony ran him over and killed him? That’s what it looks like happened here to me. Two hot heads with deadly weapons and one used it against the other.

Accident? Tony knocked Kevins car outta the race and when he got out flinging his arms and upset with Tony, Tony hits him and drags him. Charges need to be filed here.

That was his own damn fault. Why the hell would you run into the raceway in front of all the cars?? Idiot.

But one guy swerved to avoid Kevin and the other guy (Tony) swerved TOWARDS him out of anger. People who were there said it looked intentional. I guess we will find out after the investigation is completed. It seems odd that the same car that knocked him out of the race is the car that hit and killed him.

Your right, he should not have gotten out of the car, BUT is that a justification for road rage From a guy that is known for for a horrible temper! I can’t imagine he meant to kill the young man, but I do believe he wanted to bump or graze him to teach him a lesson! I was not there, but the fans at the track, tony steward and GOD knows What happened. In short the life of a 20 year old young man who made a foolish mistake is no longer with us because a self righteous arrogant PRICK with a bad temper thought he would teach this young guy a lesson. My hope is that ward was a Christian if so he is in a much better place! Thoughts and prayers to the ward family! As far as tony steward yes he deserves our prayers as we’ll. bad temper’s and weapons are a BAD combination!

Kevin was only 20 years old. So sad for all involved. Prayers to the family to overcome their loss and to tony to have the strength to recover emotionally from this tragic accident.
