Here are the last moments of Kevin Ward Jr.’s life, in a dirt-track race in upstate New York late on a Saturday night, after the kid who had dreamed about driving fast cars got out of his: Here is the car of Tony Stewart, No. 14 on this night, bumping No. 13, Ward’s Tioga Construction car, spinning it right off the track and against a wall and out of the race. Here is Ward, who has spent so much of his life on dirt tracks like this one, getting out of No. 13, getting out hot, a clear case of road

You can not get out of your car ticked off, step into racing traffic, dressed in black on a poorly lit track and expect good things to happen. I am sorry this young man is dead way too soon. However, he is culpable ,to some extent, for his own death.

Ok, got it...
Liberals don´t like racing.
Nascar is for hicks.

Anything that happens
on any track anywhere
will be used by the "enlightened"
to attack the sport
in order to "save the planet"
from competition of any kind.

I saw this reported on Fox. I don´t mean to be heartless, but Ward is clearly a nominee for the Darwin Awards.

Peace to the Kevin Ward family, and also the Tony Stewart family who must be devastated in different ways because of the rage that caused a seemingly intelligent man to run out in front of speeding cars. (as mentioned by others) Mike Lupica? Seriously? Anything the little toad considers "red neck" is too low a form of "sporting events" for his elitist tastes. BTW, while he bends on his knee for the basketball-playing- "cic", there isn´t a NASCAR person who would touch the brain-challenged lupica with a ten-foot pole. Consider the source.

Don´t know what TV channel I was watching but the commentator said that Ward was angry with the driver that caused him to have the accident and it looked like he got out of his car to go after the driver that clipped him. Not a wise move.

One thing you learn when racing cars, is the car is built to protect the driver. It has a "rollcage" built around the driver for that use. You also have to wear special seatbelts, and fire suits.

If you have a crash, you ONLY get out of that car (protection zone) if you direly have too. Meaning, if it is on fire, or something else that will hurt you !

Sorry, it was the young kid´s fault. Running into traffic was just dumb.

The first car barely missed him. When Stewart hit him, he was even further into the track. His anger cost him his life.

#12, this wasn´t NASCAR even though the media is too stupid to know the difference.

It´s a sprint car, no connection whatsoever to "Sprint Car" which is named after "Sprint Wireless Cellphone company". Remember when it was called Winston after the tobacco company??

Ward should have not gotten out of his car, on a track. He put is life at risk and lost.

IF he stayed in his car, he could have had the opportunity to go after Stewart after the race, but his poor decision made that not possible.

I´m tired of the media blowing this up as a possible intentional act. I knew the media would sensationalize this tragedy for ratings and report negative, WRONG facts just like they do with so many other incidents.

Our media is really bad and really stupid.

This is really so simple, a lesson every kindergartner knows. You walk out into traffic, you have a very good chance of getting run over by a car. I watched that video probably 20 times yesterday, I did not see any intent on Stewart´s part to run that hothead over.

It´s reasons like this that I call him Mike Stupica. The knee-jerk little Libtard has a serious case of jock envy. If he did his research he would discover that drivers pay attention to the vehicle in front of them. When the car in front of Stewart made a sudden evasive maneuver, Tony reacted in kind. He probably didn´t see the foolish hot-head running towards him until it was too late. Stupica´s column is a tragedy feuled by arrogance and the desperate need to be heard.

Kevin got out of his car and walked on the track in rage with the intent to fight Tony.

Stupid! Deadly Stupid!! Just dumb!!! Kevin gets the Darwin Award at the track.

Seeing the video, Tony probably did not see Kevin until the last second, swerved to left
to avoid hitting him and gunned it. Unfortunately, the car reacted with a rear end spin to the right and the right rear tire hitting Kevin and running over him, probably killing him instantly. Well he got even with Tony, as Tony will have to live with the fact that he killed Kevin...The one at fault here is Kevin, too young in the sport to be a good sport and accept the crash without blame and trying to get even.

Lesson to be learned here for you young hot heads. HOT HEAD LEAVES YOU DEAD!!!

The first thing race car drivers are taught is to stay in the car when you wreck unless the car is on fire. Wait for the rescue crew to arrive. Kevin Ward did something very stupid an it cost him his life.

Even FOX this morning made it "sound" like MAYBE it was Tony´s fault and MAYBE he would be charged with manslaughter or something worse. Jeesh! First of all, I saw a clip of how dark it was on that track. Add to that the fact that Ward had on a Black Suit and Helmet and had a car traveling at a high rate of speed, coming around a curve and it appears that there was NO WAY Tony Could have seen, or avoided Kevin Ward. I believe most drivers are taught very early on NEVER to get out of their car unless it´s on fire. Kevin Ward should have known better. I´m sure his family won´t admit that because they are beyond grief. But, it´s a fact that he would be alive today if he had stayed in his car! So sad for all involved.

I haven´t sat in a sprint car but I have sat in both a stock car and a super comp dragster. The visibility is beyond terrible-- you are strapped in, wearing a huge helmet and don´t have mirrors. They may be professional drivers but they still have to deal with blindspots and limited visibility. Anyone who is wearing black while standing on a dimly lit track surrounded by speeding cars has made a terrible decision. I feel sorry for all involved, including Tony Stewart.

Anyone think that you might be surprised when a person appeared, on foot, in the middle of a race track?
Those tracks are dirt, damp (does no good to drive in a cloud of dust that the fans cant see through) and built on a angle so the cars can circle faster. Could be the boy, sorry real men do not act that way, could not stop and got too close to the moving vehicle.

Sorry he is dead and very sorry the family must go through this, but Darwin strikes again.

John Travolta is feeling his celebrity Achilles heel aching after claims that he´s gay and a lawsuit to boot. "This is every celebrity´s Achilles heel," the 60-year-old actor told The Daily Beast in an interview published Tuesday. Travolta was referring to the lawsuit by Douglas Gotterba, a former pilot for his aircraft company, Alto, who worked for him in the ´80s and is alleging they were also lovers. Gotterba is seeking the right to publish a tell-all book about their romance. "It´s just about people wanting money," the award-winning actor said. "That´s all. It happens on many levels."

Moderating a panel at the No Labels´s National Strategic Agenda meeting on Wednesday, Gregory said journalists often fail to report on anything that fights the set narrative in Washington media. “[I]n Washington political journalism the narrative gets set, and it gets set early and built on.

Obamacare´s ´family glitch´
could affect 2 million Americans

Nearly two million Americans could be affected by what’s been termed the “family glitch” within President Obama’s healthcare law, according to a new study by the American Action Forum. In theory, Obamacare is supposed to offer fully or partially subsidized health insurance to Americans below a certain income threshold if they do not have the option of obtaining affordable coverage through their employers. "Affordable" is defined as coverage cheaper than 9.5 percent of household income. But under a ruling by the Internal Revenue Service, an employer is only required to offer affordable coverage to individuals. The “glitch” arises when one or both spouses

Power outages linked to L.A.´s intense heat wave rolled across the city Tuesday. As temperatures approached dangerous highs, harried crews restored service to one area only to be sent to another blackout. The scorching heat wave has pushed demand for electricity to an all-time high, and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power dispatched extra crews to respond to damaged equipment that had left thousands of customers without service. As of 10 a.m., there were 3,300 customers without power, most of them in Los Feliz and Hollywood.

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us.

U.S. on long-term track to waste

On the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, President Obama used the occasion last week to remind Americans that “our combat mission in Afghanistan will come to an end” in three months. But the cost to U.S. taxpayers for reconstruction in Afghanistan will continue. The U.S. has spent $104 billion to rebuild Afghanistan’s security forces, infrastructure, economy, and health care and education sectors. America is spending more on the effort this year alone than it’s spending on foreign assistance for Israel, Iraq, Egypt and Pakistan combined, said John Sopko, special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction.

WASHINGTON — The Islamic State militant group, which once relied on wealthy Persian Gulf donors for money, has become a self-sustaining financial juggernaut, earning more than $3 million a day from oil smuggling, human trafficking, theft and extortion, according to US intelligence officials and private experts. The extremist group’s resources exceed that “of any other terrorist group in history,” said a US intelligence official, who, like others interviewed, spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss classified assessments. Such riches are one reason that American officials are so concerned about the group even while acknowledging they have no evidence it is plotting
