I was on facebook earlier and had the video of this terribly accident shoved down my throat. I am very sorry for the young man and his family who passed away. Is anyone out there familiar with the dirt track racing rules or race track driver protocol in general? It looked to me as though the young man exited his car furious about something and looking to point the finger at someone as he entered the lanes. Is it common practice for racers to exit their vehicles like that? I would assume you would stay with it unless there was a need to get out of the car.

Terrible isn't it Wayne? I always thought drivers that got in a wreck were supposed to stay in the car until all the the other cars on the track were flagged to stop...and the race was actually stopped. It looks like this guy lost his temper, didn't think about the chance he was taking and walked right into the traffic. Looks like Tony Stewart swerved to miss him but his rear wheel ran him over. So sad...

Very sad Bob. It appeared to me to be a terrible accident. Of course our media will turn it into a circus before the investigation is said and done.

Sad day. They still haven't got all the facts in, but it doesn't look good for Tony Stewart.

If you watch the video, first, Kevin Ward Jr. left his car before the safety crew arrived. That is against the rules. Only exception is if the car is on fire. Second, he charged at Stewart. That's just wrong in any motor sport. Tony should not have spun his wheels, That's just as wrong.

Only good thing is Tony is working with the Sheriff Dept. and hopefully there won't be an extended investigation.

Everything you said makes sense up to "Tony should not have spun his wheels". I've seen the video several times. At what point did Tony spin his wheels? I saw him swerve to miss a very irate Kevin Ward but wound up running him over with his right rear wheel...and I heard for the first time on the news tonight that it was Tony Stewart that Kevin was irate/pointing at. When I heard that I didn't know what to think. Tony had to be horrified to feel that young man's body under his tire. Why didn't all the drivers just stop when they saw him out on the track? It all doesn't seem to makes sense.

My wife used to race quarter midgets when she was little, and has been a big fan of sprint car and Nascar racing since. She also reiterated the # 1 driver rule, to stay in your car at all times.

Not a good situation for Tony Stewart, knowing what happened.

Bob, I saw a video from a guys cell phone. It was zoomed in on the cars from when the initial contact happened, to the crash, the kid leaving his car, and charging towards Tony's car and the actual impact. I watched it 3 times before I noticed, the engine rev'd and you can clearly see the rear tires spin [mud flying] and then the kid disappeared for that moment before he was flung out from under the tire.

And yes, even if found not guilty, Tony will forever have to bear the burden of knowing what happened.

Wow...Such a tragic accident. I guess it all just happened so fast...wasn't much time to think or react. Perhaps by spinning his wheels...that's why Tony's rear wheel got him...as the car was going sideways a bit. Maybe he hit the gas to miss Kevin?

I can only hope so. It was on a turn and that's how those Sprint cars turn on dirt due to Lockers and staggered tire sizes in the rear.

Well, it looks like Tony Stewart is not taking this very well. Stewart-Haas Racing just made the announcement that Tony will not race again this Sunday. Jeff Burton will take his place and they are not sure about the rest of the season.
This is really messing with his head.

Now NASCAR is reiterating the rule of staying in your car:

They should have been on top of this for the last few years and maybe this ordeal never would have happened.
