    And you believe that Stewart hit him on purpose?

    What's next, murder on the PGA tour?
    I take back what I said previously. Nothing will probably come from this, and these are professionals. They know the risk. Being that I am not a fan of the sport...it won't effect me either way.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Don't worry - in a month this will all be the "liberal media's" fault going after a sport that they don't like because of "rednecks."
    Naw, the liberal media is trying to figure out how they can make this about race.

    The guy was wearing a black suit....maybe Tony felt threatened.

    How can anyone tell? I'm not saying he wasn't, but there's no brake lights, so....how would I know?

    I know the video quality is low, but on a good monitor you can see that the lettering on the tires are not moving.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    It's not the monitor, it's a cruddy video. It looked like the lettering was moving to me, but even that's not something I'd hang my hat on with that poor quality.

    It looks like there will be no charges. Which is probably fine, there's nothing right now to prove that it's more than a terrible accident.

    Having now watched the grainy video, all I can think is how ****ing stupid do you have to be to walk towards oncoming cars on a race track?

    Yiikes.

    He would have been lucky to not be dead regardless. Should have hopped his ass off the track to safety. Ugh.

    He wasn't driving at high speeds but those little cars are very unstable.

    Pulling the steering wheel sharply will flip the car possibly causing his own death.

    Just like when driving onthe street, hit whatever comes into your path. When you swerve, you die.
