NASCAR driver Tony Stewart struck and killed sprint car driver Kevin Ward Jr., who had climbed from his car and was on the track trying to confront Stewart during a race in upstate New York on Saturday night.
Stewart was unhurt, and plans to race Sunday in the NASCAR event at Watkins Glen, his manager Greg Zipadelli said, calling it “business as usual.” The race is critical for his championship chances.
NASCAR says that nothing it has learned would preclude Stewart from racing Sunday.
Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero said his department’s investigation is not criminal and that Stewart was “fully cooperative” and appeared “very upset” over what had happened.
“He was visibly shaken by this accident,” Povero said.
