As eyewitness statements continue to come forward regarding Tony Stewart’s role in the death of Kevin Ward Jr., the latest story just may make your head spin. We know that most of our Mr. Conservative readers are unanimously in support of Stewart, but one driver who was on the track Saturday night, said he had no problem seeing Ward “clear as day.”
The statement comes from the lips of Paul Kinney, 30, who actually drove by Ward after he had exited his vehicle to express his outright anger with Stewart. As he thinks back, he explains that he didn’t see Ward get hit by Stewart, but said that he clearly saw the 20-year-old racer after he’d gotten out of his car and was walking on the track.
“I drove right by him,” Kinney said. “He looked a little bit angry. I didn’t think much of it. A lot of drivers do that.” He then went on to drop a bombshell describing, “I seen Kevin clear as day. Nobody else ran into him, either.”
Kinney is trying to stay objective however only dealing with the facts – and as they stand, he had no trouble seeing Ward just seconds before his death. He also explained that he has temporarily stopped going on Facebook to avoid the discussions and arguments entirely.
“That’s obviously not a racing incident,” he explained. “It’s not a good idea to get out of your car and run towards other cars. But nobody can speak for Tony. Only Tony knows exactly what happened.”
It’s clear here that Kinney is in no way, pointing the finger at Stewart, just explaining his recollection of the night’s events, but what do you guys think of what the fellow driver had to say? Feel free to let us know in the comments below.
