Amazing that some are still talking about Tony supposedly trying to intimidate the kid, after all the times that has been debunked (based on explanations of how Sprint cars work and how merely turning the wheel does very little but getting on the throttle is how they turn). The video is taken from the opposite side of the track and in all the times I watched and listened carefully, I didn't see how people could definitively blame Tony's car as having a sudden mash of throttle. But even assuming it did, he would have been TRYING TO TURN AWAY from Ward. The problem is, Sprint car. As you turn, your car gets wider (sideways). And here comes that HUGE right rear tire. Most of what I read from the family at the time of the accident admitted they didn't actually see what happened. Or watch the video. My heart goes out to them, but part of grieving is accepting the truth of what took place. Maybe they'd have a case if Ward had stayed right by his car, but he's the one who angrily ran down into the racing line and almost got run over by another car as well. While impaired by THC. My feeling is if you use drugs, and you race, you probably have certain coping mechanisms so you can still race in a high-functioning way. But you are still racing, so even small lapses in judgment can have big consequences. And believe me, race rage is more than capable of overcoming even a drug that would normally keep you calm. The drug just might impair the part of your brain that would whisper "hey man, cool down, don't make this any worse than it already is"... He might be able to race more or less well enough so we don't suspect, but it still doesn't help once he is on foot and suddenly realizing he has run right into harm's way.
