I am no Tony Stewart fan but it sure looks to me that tony tried to take evasive action and tried to slide the car down to avoid Ward. You can't simply swerve a dirt track car like you can a street car to avoid something quickly.
Added note: Tony does have a history of a quick temper. He and I had our share of personal confrontations back in the day and it would not bother me one bit personally to see him go down for this but I really feel like he did his best to avoid this situation..... at least what we can see from this videos angle.
Seems clear to me this was bad judgement on Wards part. Such a shame. He was way down the track and below the line Stewart was running. It looked like Ward almost got hit by the car in front of Stewart. Emotions were obviously high for Ward and he made a decision that ended his life.
Looks to me like an accident, but not caused on purpose. I have never driven one of those cars, but I would think that Ward was in 1 of many blind spots in those cars. I don't think Tony did anything wrong..
Dumb ass, it looked to me he was yelling at the blue and white car at first for how close he was to it. and then tony just happen to be the next car in that spot he stood in. He was pissed at tony that is for damn sure, and he took it to his grave.
I think the kid made a bad decision but there is NO way that Tony was accidentally that close to him. There was absolutely no reason for him to drive by that kid and that accident so close. His childish temper and lack of self control cost that boy his life. Just one more example of the spoiled punk that is un-able to control his temper that Tony has become. He should hang for this. Flame on those of you with stewart nut sweat drippin on you.
