NASCAR's Tony Stewart Will NOT Race One Day After Fatal Accident That Killed Kevin Ward Jr.
“From @StewartHaasRcng’s VP of Competition: Tony Stewart will not race today at @WGI,” NASCAR confirmed via Twitter.
Earlier in the day, it was still up in the air as to whether the 43-year-old driver would get behind the wheel.
“NASCAR spokesman says they are still gathering facts, but as of now there is nothing that would preclude Tony Stewart from racing today,” USA Today‘s Jeff Gluck tweeted. “NASCAR spokesman clarifies it’s too early in process to say whether Tony Stewart will race today. NASCAR still gathering info, he says.”
In case you missed the news, the fatal accident took place during a dirt-track event at the Canandaigua Speedway on Saturday (August 9) in Canandaigua, N.Y. Tony‘s team has released a statement about the ongoing investigation.
