Kevin Ward Jr.'s family issues statement saying 'the matter is not at rest'
 
Ward, 20, was struck and killed by Stewart after the two were racing together in a sprint car race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park. After Ward's car hit the wall, he exited the car and came down the track to confront Stewart, where he was hit by the right-rear tire of Stewart's car.

Ontario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo announced the grand jury's decision and said video evidence showed Stewart drove in a straight line, that toxicology reports determined that Ward was under the influence of marijuana at the time and it was an amount enough to "impair his judgment."

The marijuana revelation, previously unreported, provided new evidence that transferred the focus of responsibility from Stewart back to Ward, something his family took issue with.

I am a Tony Stewart fan. Have been for a long time. I am also a Dirt Track fan. I grew up in "Sprint Car" racing. I know a lot of things about that "car" that the average Joe doesn't. Too much to type. Just know that it is hard to see whats on the right side. I'm glad Tony wasn't found to be at fault in this terrible tragedy.

Ward being "high" and driving a Sprint Car...... He caused his own death, at Tony's expense.

I'd like to hear more drivers comment on this. I feel for this guys family, but, doesn't he take some of the responsibility for this by getting out of his car and walking into the track?

And it took this tragedy to make the racing governing body think that they should ban getting out of car on a racetrack? It's a sad situation on both sides.

You never get out of your race car. Sad to say but yes
