“This has been one of the toughest tragedies I’ve ever had to deal with, both professionally and personally. This is something that will definitely affect my life forever.” Watch the full statement, inside…
HAMPTON, Ga. – Speaking quietly and his voice trembling, NASCAR superstar Tony Stewart said Friday that the death of Kevin Ward Jr. will “affect my life forever” as he returned to the track for the first time since his car struck and killed the fellow driver during a sprint-car race in New York three weeks ago.

What exactly happened on Saturday night at Canandaigua Motorsports Park, when Kevin Ward Jr. left his car and met his untimely end at the hand of Tony Stewart? Was his death an accident? Was it a scare tactic gone wrong? Or was it a terrifying result of Stewart’s legendary temper?
Stewart will not participate in Saturday’s sprint car race in Plymouth, IN, and his status for Sunday’s NASCAR Pure Michigan 400 is up in the air.
Stewart hit and killed Kevin Ward Jr. with his car as Ward was out on the track trying to argue with Stewart during a sprint car race on Saturday night.
How Was Tony Stewart Even Thinking Of Driving Today After Involvement In Fatal Sprint Car Crash Saturday?
Kevin Ward, Jr., 20, was killed when he was struck by Stewart’s car, after Ward had exited his car following a wreck. He was yelling at Stewart in the middle of the dirt track when he was struck.
Well, helmet heave is more like it, we guess, but you get the idea. Over the weekend, Tony Stewart and Matt Kenseth collided while competing for the lead at Bristol Motor Speedway. Unsurprisingly, this did not end well for either competitor, and Stewart decided to show Kenseth just how angry he was. Shockingly, the car did not appear to sustain significant damage. [Guyism]
On Friday, Tony Stewart had a nice little pow-wow with the media (it was called a “garage-area media availability” session, to be exact). At some point, he got mad at Associated Press reporter Jenna Fryer for asking a question about a Sprint Cup race that took place at Richmond International Raceway, which I guess would be okay if not for the fact the interview was taking place at… Richmond International Raceway.
