Like when Earnhardt died, changes will no doubt be made to make the sport safer. Stay in your damn car!
How do you figure that Tony was hotheaded here? There was no indication whatsoever, and we can only speculate at this. If you don't like Tony, then fine, but I have seen Kyle Busch do a HECK of a lot of stupid, hot headed things more than Tony ever did. More dangerous as well. I would expect KYLE to do something worse considering how he drives! Either way, until the investigation is over we should all refrain from making rash comments or decisions. That is what causes MORE stupid things to get done or said.

This time I think he may have crossed the line..it doesn't look good...
Prayers to the Ward family...just a horrible and avoidable tragedy.....
I've watched the videos a couple of times as well. It is hard to tell for sure because remember, this is on a DIRT track, where traction is terrible anyway. Perhaps Tony saw him right after the car in front of him passed Kevin. No way to see real well. Dark track, Kevin was in an all black firesuit..... I am thinking perhaps Tony saw him and jerked the wheel away at the last second, which could account for the back end kicking over.
We can all speculate until after the investigation.
