I don't know why you continue to say it's common. In my experience it is not. I raced in IMCA modifieds for six years and have been involved with sprint cars for over 10 years. I've never seen a...

I don't know about that. Looks to me like Stewart passed him pretty easily. Ward only got up next to Stewart again when Stewart was slowing down for the caution. This is what really caused the...

False.

You have no idea who gunned the engine. I maintain it might have been car #45 just as much as it might have been Stewart. Either way it doesn't mean anything. If Stewart had gunned the...

You can't even prove the sound came from his car. Even if it did you have no way to prove it was done with the intent to hit Ward. This wheel movement you keep referring to is a red herring. One...

Stewart had to have know Ward was going to grab his wing to even consider it to be murder. Is Stewart just that good that he could predict Wards actions?

You're getting desperate now. Ward only ran down the track when car #45 and Stewarts were getting close. Of course Paul Kinney didn't' run into him, Ward was still up around his car. Didn't the...

I think if you suited up, put on the HANS, put on the helmet and then were belted in with a 5 or 6 point harness you'd know the point I'm trying to make.

Are you familiar with the Hans device? It restricts movement of the head. Do you really think Stewart would be able to look more the 90 degrees to his right rear to see a tire at his rear wheel? ...
