Stewart pulls out of NASCAR race after sprint car accident

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) — Tony Stewart pulled out of the NASCAR race at Watkins Glen Sunday, 12 hours after the three-time champion struck and killed a sprint car driver who had climbed from his car and was on the darkened dirt track trying to confront Stewart during a race in upstate New York.

In a statement, Stewart said the crash has been “emotional” for all involved.

“There aren’t words to describe the sadness I feel about the accident that took the life of Kevin Ward Jr.,” he said.
