Also what people doesn’t realize is that those cars don’t have a clutch so you have to keep reving them up and he was only a split second behind the blue car that swerved in front of him so with the 8 inches of window and he can’t see on either side your lookimg straight ahead he had no idea he was there i am sure of it if anyone has actually drove in those cars you would understand people who talk outheir butts before they know what they talking about

To those that commented here. Hindsight is 20-20. If you look at the video and audio, you will see Tony try to get his car sidesways to spray mud on Kevin. That’s a characteristic of the Sprint Cars. With the large r.r. tire and smaller l.r. tire, you hit the throttle and the car goes sideways. Look at the angle of the car and listen to the audio, you can clearly hear the throttle rap and see the car go sideways. The intent was there, the outcome unplanned.

A non-witness account. The accident was behind him therefore, Paul Kinney did not see a thing useful.

WHAT DID HE THINK HE WAS GOING TO ACCOMPLISH? DID HE THINK TONY WAS ACTUALLY GONNA BE ABLE TO STOP GOING.THAT FAST? WHY WOULD TONY STOP ANYWAYS THAT JUST WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE CONFRONTATION TONY WAS TRYING TO AVOID. HE DID NOT MEAN TO HIT THA RIDICULOUS MINDED 20 YEAR OLD WHO.THOUGHT IT WAS OK TO GET OUT AN CONFRONT A RACER WHILE HES STILL GOING FAST. HE SHOUKD HAVE KNOWN THATS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU PUT URSELF IN.THA MIDDLE OF A DIRT RACE TRACK AT 10:30 AT NIGHT. THIS REALLY PISSES ME OFF!!!!

Tony and Tony alone decided to mash the gas. He caused this mans death. Maybe it wasnt intentional, but it happened. Because Tony decided to mash the gas…

How does one determine that Ward “looked angry ” when he had a full face helmet on with visor down?

bottom line is this, if Ward would have never got out of the car ,none of this would be going on. so the kids dad needs to take a little bit of knowing that his son caused the whole thing.

I’m sorry for all families involved.!! But one mr. Ward should have stayed in the car and not got out. I think tony was upset when he hot mr. Ward and when he came back around didn’t see him bc it was dark and hard tovsee mr. Ward bc of the black firesuit didn’t help. As all accidents the drivers usually stays in the car not unless it’s on fire. As every family they need someone to blame. And I understand that. Give it a few years so the family hearts can heal. And on a track at night I think they need to wear color firesuits so everyone can be seen better not dark colors

I agree all the years (31) I have raced it was mandatory to wear white, Tony did not accelerate at the time of impact! when his wing hit Mr Ward it pulled his front end to the right if he would have accelerated with 14 inches of stagger the rear would have stepped out which it did not. It was a total accident,when Keven approched Tony’s car he didn’t compensate for the wing!!!!!
