Do you think it was intentional?

You're right, but that's nothing new. A lot of drivers do that.

They're risking their lives by doing that crazy shit. The guy, Kevin Ward, got his life taken away just because he was pissed at another driver. He wanted to cuss him out, but instead got hit and later unfortunately died.

Eye witness reports say he was ran over intentionally. I've seen people divided on this. We'll have to wait and see.

No way. Especially not with midget racing. Those cars spend 90% of the race drifting out of control. That guy was out of his mind walking on the track like that.

Kinda looks like it.

But in the end, both made a mistake. Kevin Ward shouldn't have ran out to the track and Tony Stewart should've been driving more carefully.

Well either way I agree that it was dumb on his part.

Default Re: Tony Stewart hits, kills driver Kevin Ward Jr. in sprint car race

How can people say it looked intentional?

Because Kevin Ward was on the track, and Tony Stewart was driving his car on the track?

Anyone, that is a shitty and very sad tragedy. RIP.

I don't know if he intentionally hit him but knowing Stewart, he has a temper problem. He didn't hit him but he was playing chicken with the kid. The kid didn't belong in the middle of the track so Stewart came at him hoping the kid get out of the way and he didn't.

Very unfortunate.

Going off of the comments, I figured dude crashed in the middle of the track and was hit trying to run off. He crashed off to the side and ran TOWARDS where the cars were racing?

Hard to blame the other driver when the guy put himself out there like that. He started moving inside fast a few seconds before he was hit...imagine seeing that from the perspective of one of those cars moving fast. A few seconds is not a lot of time to adjust whether it was to swerve away or towards the guy.
