The death of sprint car driver Kevin Ward Jr. impacting the Sprint Cup circuit and driver Tony Stewart, as Stewart’s fellow drivers offer their views on the tragedy.
FOX News Radio’s Marghiee Teshineh has this week’s “FOX in the Fast Lane”:
As the NASCAR Sprint Cup series heads to Michigan again, for this weekend’s race, it’s Tony Stewart’s involvement in the death of Kevin Ward Jr. last weekend during a sprint car race that has the racing world talking.
I spoke to driver Matt Kenseth who summed up what everyone has been thinking…
(Kenseth) “It’s a tragic accident and you think about his family and you know, try to imagine, you know, what they are going through and really Tony as well and everybody involved.”
Kenseth added that Stewart is not the only driver to ever lose his cool when racing against him:
(Kenseth) “Oh I’ve had conflicts with a lot of different drivers out there and actually I feel like, you know, Tony and I have always raced together really good. He’s a good person, one of the more caring guys, do about anything for ya.”
Late word this week from Stewart’s camp was that Stewart would not be racing this weekend at Michigan.
