  1. Kurt Crowley says:

    15 years of evidence on Tony Stewart shows what he was up to, he wanted to put Ward in his place and give him a dirt shower, and it backfired in worst possible manner.

    Now Stewart gets to find out what true ‘payback’ is, literally.

    Civil settlement won’t bring that kid back though.

    • Lee Hacksaw Hamilton says:

      This is bad situation….drivers in race told police they believe Stewart tried to show Ward up by splashing mud on him..think he will be charged with something like reckless endangerment…he has pulled out of Michigan 400 now.
