What Did Tony Stewart Do?

What Did Tony Stewart Do?

I woke up this morning to messages about Tony Stewart, and had to Google what he had done now. That meant I got to see the video and read about him running over another driver on a dirt track last night.

It’s disturbing in so many ways. I have no idea why Kevin Ward thought running in the direction of moving race cars was a good idea. He was obviously very angry a about being run into the wall…

NASCAR Hiding The Nasty Facts?

I’m not normally a conspiracy guy, but does anyone think NASCAR is blocking the fan videos of that crash from today’s race because they don’t want people to see the shocking reality of what could happen at a race?

Look, I’m not a fan, but I also know the excitement of car racing is the speed, the adrenaline, the danger. But if it becomes obvious that the danger extends into just being a spectator, this is not going to help keep fans buying tickets, let alone attract new fans.

I’ve seen the video, it is quite shocking to see a freaking tire in the stands and people injured because of it. That’s scary stuff. It’s not good PR for your sport to have that out there.
