Manager: Stewart to race today after accident

CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. – A manager for NASCAR driver Tony Stewart’s racing team said Stewart will race in an event today in upstate New York.

The decision comes hours after Stewart struck and killed a driver who was walking on a dirt track during a race on Saturday night.

A video of the crash at Canandaigua Motorsports Park showed driver Kevin Ward Jr. stepping toward Stewart’s car before being hit and hurtled 50 feet. It appeared Ward was trying to confront Stewart when he was struck.

Team manager Greg Zipadelli said Stewart will race in NASCAR’s event today at Watkins Glen, calling the race “business as usual.”
