Investigating Sheriff Finds No Reason So Far To Charge Tony Stewart
Published August 11, 2014
Plymouth (Ind.) Speedway last night in a statement on its website said that Stewart "will not race Saturday at the track in his home state" (Toledo BLADE, 8/11). Meanwhile, there was a "deafening silence" on the incident at yesterday's Cup race. There was "no moment of silence" for Ward, and Rev. David Fife in his pre-race invocation "made no mention of the loss of life the night before, instead thanking God for the weather on race day" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 8/11).
USA Today runs a series of stories on the incident, previewing its coverage with the front-page headline, "Death On A Dirt Track Clouds NASCAR Image" (THE DAILY). The AP's Wawrow & Gelston write, "The sport was left reeling from a tragedy that could have ripple effects from the biggest stock car series down to weeknight dirt track racing" (AP, 8/10).
