After breaking his leg in a sprint car race in 2013 and fatally wounding another driver in a race last year, Tony Stewart may not be racing on dirt tracks for a while, but he has just bought out one of America's longest-standing sprint car racing series.
Upon my review of all of the information contained in the entire investigation, I have made the determination that it would be appropriate to submit the evidence to a grand jury, for their determination as to what action should be taken in this matter. Accordingly, the evidence developed in the investigation will be presented to an Ontario County grand jury in the near future.
Tony Stewart made his return to the NASCAR Sprint Cup over the weekend at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. However, the race probably wasn't as triumphant as he had hoped. Stewart started in a strong 12th place but eventually had to retire midway through the event. It gives him just one last chance to make it into the Chase for the Sprint Cup and compete for a chance to win his fourth series championship. To do it, he would need to win the upcoming race at Richmond International Raceway. Although, so
Two weeks since fatally hitting driver Kevin Ward Jr. during a sprint car race in New York, Tony Stewart is returning to the NASCAR Sprint Cup for the upcoming race at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The three-time series champion had missed the last three races following the tragedy.
The tragic case of Tony Stewart striking and killing Kevin Ward, Jr. in a sprint car race earlier this week has been dividing opinions, with some screaming for Stewart's head and others saying that Ward brought it upon himself. But while local law enforcement did not initially arrest Stewart or press criminal charges, that doesn't mean that criminal charges won't still be filed.
Barely two days removed from the tragic incident between NASCAR Sprint Cup star Tony Stewart and young Kevin Ward Jr., we're still far from certain of the particulars of the events that led to Ward's death. What is certain, though, is that the Internet's proselytizing of the incident has hit its stride.
Tony Stewart, three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion, hit and killed fellow driver Kevin Ward Jr. after an on-track altercation sent the 20-year-old Ward into the wall, leaving him out of the race. According to witnesses and video recorded from the stands, Ward exited his car, throwing his hands up in frustration, and walked toward Stewart as he came back around the track under the caution flag. Stewart's car came into contact with Ward, who was sucked under Stewart's car before being thrown seve
NASCAR driver Tony Stewart is making good use of his nickname Smoke in new videos inspired by the 1970s classic Smokey and the Bandit. The original is one of the quintessential automotive movies of its era with a fantastic combination of slapstick comedy and great car stunts in a Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. If you've never seen it, check it out immediately.
Chevrolet has, so far, let a slow trickle of information about its SEMA trucks reach the public. Yesterday, we showed you the Cheyenne Concept. In September we saw a pair of trucks, the Silverado Black Ops and Silverado Volunteer Firefighter, that will be on display this week at SEMA but debuted at the Texas State Fair. Now, we have the full deluge of details on all of Chevy's modded pickups.
Tony Stewart's passion for racing is likely going to prevent him from having a hope of capturing his fourth Sprint Cup Championship. Stewart currently sits eleventh in the championship, but after a second surgery for the broken leg he suffered in a sprint car crash earlier this week, his second wreck in less than two weeks, Stewart-Haas Racing says the 42-year-old veteran will be out of the car "indefinitely," according to USA Today.
Tony Stewart is proving that that things we love might not always be good for us. After a big tumble across an Ontario short track, the driver of the number 14 car and co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing had another incident, this time at a half-mile dirt track in Oskaloosa, IA. And unlike that last crash, Stewart sustained some pretty bad injuries.
Tony Stewart is a racecar driver. There aren't really any ifs, ands or buts about that. Unlike the sheltered stars of other sports that would rarely be caught dead around the lower levels, Stewart actively seeks out midget and sprint races, often on dirt tracks around the country. Stewart got started in these smaller, local events, and hasn't stopped racing in them since hitting it big.
NASCAR driver Tony Stewart is known as "Smoke" to many, and the custom Camaro ZL1 he helped create for SEMA reflects his sometimes mysterious personality. Chevy design manager Dave Ross worked with Stewart to come up with not only the flat red and silver tribal theme, but the custom gray-metallic paint and the red-haloed headlights, as well.
Say what you will about NASCAR, but there's no denying that the race series remains a spectacle. Look no further than the last two laps at Talladega this past weekend as evidence. The final restart of the race saw Matt Kenseth at the head of the pack, but Tony Stewart managed to take the lead just before the white flag fell thanks to a push from Sam Hornish. But as the pack came out of Turn 3, Stewart dropped low to attempt to gain yet another push, snagging the rear of his car on the nose of Mi
Ties don't typically happen in racing. Other sports, sure, but not motorsports. Because while the issue can sometimes come down to a fraction of a second, someone always crosses the finish line first. And when it comes to championship points, someone always comes out ahead. Well, almost always.
Five NASCAR drivers invited to meet President Barack Obama at the White House aren't going to show, citing "scheduling conflicts." Nobody's sure whether "scheduling conflicts" means "political views," but thanks to stereotypes associated with NASCAR, nobody's ruling that out.
