Fifteen cars wrecked, two people hurt, and Tony Stewart takes responsibility
Tony owns his own racetrack, and hosts charity races there, in addition to good old fashioned Saturday night races - or any other night of the week. This week, however, Tony was participating at Canadaiqua Motorsports Park. He is interviewed early on in the video, offering his opinion of the racetrack, his car and what can be expected. The prade laps begin and the drivers perform the four wide salute to the fans. The green flag is waved, and it's only when the race hits lap 7 that things get ugly.
Thankfully, just after the 7 minute mark, drivers can be seen climbing from their cars and rushing to help out other drivers. The persons filming the video can be heard offering their opinions of the wreck, and their hopes that no one was injured. Unfortunately, two drivers, Paul Kinney, and Alysha Ruggles, only 19, were injured. Thankfully, the result was not worse, and no one was killed.
Tony did acknowledge responsibilty, and hopefully his pockets are deep enough to help out the teams he destroyed in trying to put his car where it just did not belong.
