From the Blaze:

Tony Stewart did not race Sunday following the death of a sprint car driver who was struck and killed by Stewart at an upstate New York dirt track.

Greg Zipadelli, competition director for Stewart-Haas Racing, said the three-time NASCAR champion “feels strongly” he should not race at Watkins Glen following Kevin Ward Jr.’s fatal accident.

Regan Smith replaced Stewart in the car.

Should Tony Stewart face charges as a result of the tragedy?
