You can hear that he gunned the engine which in those cars makes them fishtail and he killed someone due to his negligence. He's going to jail. His temper got the best of him. Insane.

I'll paste my reply from another message board into this thread. For those not sure of how these cars work, it may seem much different than what may have happened.

 

 

I'll comment for others not sure of how these cars react on dirt.

They are designed to be pitched and rotated with the throttle and thus the suspension reacts very differently than that of a natural car. You hit the throttle, and the attitude of the car assumes a desired position almost naturally.. just with the spring setup.
 
The victim, in a stupid fit of rage, ran down into the path of race cars traveling on dirt, still going a decent speed. The car just prior to Tony's has to maneuver around the victim. Tony is in line of where the previous car was running.
 
Tony sees victim and steers left and throttles to miss him. The car takes it's natural path and kicks the right rear tire out, striking the victim.
 
There are two types of drivers out there. The type who drive 'through' danger and those who slow down and process it differently. It appears Tony had a throttle reflex and it may or may not have meant a difference in the outcome.
 
 
Let's keep blame open until further news arrives.

Stewart could have avoided this. Regardless of how stupid the kid was to do this. In Nascar its pretty common to see drivers hop out and be pissed off. Stewart could have just swerved out of the way. Why did he even thrust the throttle? I don't get that.

Sad to hear this happen. Local track here Bowman Gray Stadium drivers get out of there cars a lot. I'm surprise this hasn't happen there yet.

No clue if this is intentional or not but my heart breaks for that kid's family.

It's night, it's dark, the guy is wearing a black helmet and black fire suit, it's a local-yokel, poorly lit track and this guy decides to approach oncoming traffic.

 

Sad.

Yeah I keep reading that the car in front of Stewart had to veer out of his way. I'm sure more video and facts will come out but if i had to guess it was not intentional.

Stewart probably didn't hit the driver on purpose, the video makes it look like he tried to run him down on purpose though.

Stewart's been known to run out on the track as well. All involved are idiots.
