Driver who was in deadly NASCAR race speaks out about Tony Stewart as the controversial champ skips a second sprint

A NASCAR driver who competed in the night race that killed that 20-year-old Kevin Ward JR has said the young star could clearly be seen on the track before Tony Stewart ran him over.

Dirt track racer Paul Kinney said while he didn't witness the shocking crash in New York on Saturday, he drove past Ward moments before he was hit by Stewart.

After spinning out of the race from a collision with Stewart, an angered Ward got out of his car and walked onto the track, pointing at Stewart, when Stewart smashed into him.

'I drove right by him,' Kinney told NBC News on Monday.
