If you had a chance to read through my previous thread, it's already been made known that NASCAR star Tony Stewart was involved in an accident with sprint car racer, Kevin Ward Jr.
Ward Jr. lost his life after he was struck by Stewart's sprint car.
Although Stewart was scheduled to race last night in the sprint car event AND today at Watkins Glen, Stewart has chosen not to participate in today's race. This comes after reports that his racing team was operating "business as usual" this morning.
Stewart's team director Greg Zipadelli said Sunday morning the driver has decided not to drive in the event.
On Saturday night, Ward's sprint car hit the outside wall during lap 14 of a 25-lap race, Ontario County Sheriff Philip C. Povero said.
A video of the incident shows Ward out of his crashed car, walking on the track toward the race cars, which had slowed for a yellow flag. Ward points a finger and appears to be yelling. One car swerves to avoid Ward on the track.
Stewart's car passes close to Ward, and it appears that its right rear tire hits him.
