ESPN reporting the guy passed.

I saw video. I have no idea if Stewart did it intentionally or not. The guy put himself in harm's way. It's a sickening accident, but I can't say if Stewart meant to hit him (people familiar with racing seem to think he did).

No idea if he did it on purpose or not but walking out on that track was completely stupid. These guys are driving with their foot on the floor and those cars slide all over the place. Yell at him in the pits if you're pissed. Don't walk in the middle of traffic on a race track. I mean come on. The guy has to take some responsibility for his own damn actions even though that's very rare in today's society.

I agree what Ward did was foolish, but we are tAlking Tony Stewart here. He's a walking incident.
Everyone this morning is in protect Tony Stewart mode. All outlets
I want to see what the investigation comes with.

Kid was stupid, but you can hear the engine gun as Stewart's car approaches.

And according to at least one commenter on the thread, when you gun a sprint car engine, it will set sideways, and that Stewart would have known that.

I don't know if that's true or not, but I do know Stewart is volatile.

Unreal.

This is going to be an interesting investigation.

I watched the video and have no idea if it was intentional either. He revved his engine, for sure, but that doesn't necessarily prove anything. Could have been similar to me when I pass a goddam cyclist in rush hour traffic on a bad day here in Pittsburgh. I could calmly go around him. But if I'm pissed off enough, I may floor the gas while passing him.

Frankly, I don't care if he did it intentionally or not, I think he should go to fail for a long time either way.

Does the usual concept of drivers assuming all responsibility when striking a pedestrian apply to race tracks?
