I view it as an accident that was brought on by Smokes actions. I know he squeezed kevin into the wall and when the caution came out. He would have had a very good idea what happened. This site will only accept so many words that is why I have so many posts.
    He would have had time to slow down, clean his shield and get prepared for stalled cars and possible people on the track. But Smoke was getting back on the horse that bucked him off a year ago. I never saw that video, I am not sure if the Iowa boys got Rough with him or not. But, there would have been high emotions on his part and when the young buck came down to challenge the old buck. He could not let it go; A little buzz job was in order and the accident happened. I am positive Smoke is devastated and will never be the same. I am out of here, glad I could give you all a little laugh. They are harder to come by now that Robin Williams is dead. Go Cyclones beat the hawks. We can all agree on that.

    Re: Tony Stewart may have hit/ran over someone

    so nowhere in that monologue was it revealed that you have any experience driving or racing sprint cars. Ok then. I'll continue to listen to isufbcurt, the driver directly ahead of Stewart, and now one a couple cars behind him as well.


    and they allow a lot more than 100 words a post.

    I think there's a BS limit though.

    Apparently not. Unless continually quoting yourself is a loophole around it.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    I think I regularly prove this is not true.

    Re: Tony Stewart may have hit/ran over someone

    You know that t.v. show that your friends get you all hyped up about and then you finally get to see it, but it sucks and is nothing like what they described in the least. That is Boyd's post. Built cars/engines never raced Sprint cars.

    Kind of like that expert that was quoted that had watched NASCAR.

    Not surprised by this, but Stewart isnt racing this weekend. I highly doubt he races the rest of the year.

    Granted this is "I heard someone say they heard from someone who knows something", but a co-worker said there's rumblings of him quitting for good.

    Again, disclosure that there's no first, second, or probably 3rd hand source, but I thought it interesting after hearing he was sitting this week, and that specific quote in the article:

    His plans for the rest of the season have not been determined.

    There was a rumor going around that Rusty Wallace told someone at the AP that Tony was retiring. Wallace has come out and said that never happened and its just a rumor.

    There may be as many as $100 million reasons why Tony won't retire between all of his sponsorship deals for him and SHR. Not saying that should be the deciding factor to him coming back but we all know money talks.

    Once he misses the Michigan race, he will not be eligible for the Chase (unless he can get a waiver from NASCAR). So at this point, he might as well sit out the season and regroup.

    This would be his best option from a PR standpoint. I think the public wants to see that this tragic accident truly did affect him. Racing right away is immediately going to give a lot of people the notion that he simply doesn't care that the accident ever happened. I'm not saying that's my opinion, but that seems to be the mindset of a lot of his haters.

    My overall dislike for Tony aside, I'd say he's probably the least likely to do anything just for money. That's the one thing I respect him for.

    But yeah, in spite of all the limitations of a sprint car, especially visibility on the right side, I'm sure Tony Stewart was still able to see Ward in less than half a second and maneuver his car in such a way to hit him
