Re: Tony Stewart Strikes/Kills Racer

I feel bad that the young man was killed, but he was an idiot for getting out of the car and walking into the middle of the track to confront Stewart. Black fire suite and helmet too boot. Sad situation all the way around.

Re: Tony Stewart Strikes/Kills Racer

A lot of people are saying that he swerved into the guy......

It looks to me like he goosed the throttle and steered away from the guy.....

People don't understand that you steer a sprint car more with the throttle than you do with the wheel....

Re: Tony Stewart Strikes/Kills Racer

I agree Buckshot. The video can be found on Google, and I watched it several times.

Sad situation for all involved. I realize the driver was mad and running on emotion, but it was a bad choice to get out of the car and go down in front of other cars on a "not well lit" track.
Not hard at all to see where Tony didn't see him until it was to late. To think that Tony intentionally swerved to hit another driver is ludicrous.

Sad part is that a 20 year old young man lost his life last night.

Your never to old to learn something stupid

Re: Tony Stewart Strikes/Kills Racer

What I think happened was Tony hit the throttle knowing the rear end would fish tail some to scare the guy or "bump" him , not to kill him.
When two people are having issues and one ends up dead that's a
touchy situation .

The rear end clearly slides to the inside as he hits the throttle like he just saw the guy, and was trying to act evasively........thats how it looks to me anyways

Looks like tony wanted to give the guy a dirt shower and was closer than he thought.
