Parents never heel after losing a child . Well a parent that loves a child unconditionally. Tony will never really heal. Ask anyone who has killed someone no matter how innocent the person was. Just look at the suicide rate with serviceman after every war this country has been in. My dad said you see the death stare , hear the death rattle & smell death for the rest of your life. Death is something that can not be fixed . Like a broken leg. J/S

I just hope he is being sincere and not putting on a show.
Of course he is putting on a show.

To be quite honest, I don't understand what he has to heal from. It's the Ward's I have the sympathy for. They are the ones who lost, not Tony. He hasn't lost anything. So he misses a couple of races, stays quiet, on the advice of his Attys. while they think things blow over, but I really feel if he was that sorry and felt that bad, he wouldn't be worried about the chase. JMO, but I think it is a real disrespect to the Wards.

I understand where you are coming from. I think I also have the same thoughts. I've just never approved of his attitude, disposition or actions. I've never thought he was funny or a hero for the way he has acted and the things he has done. I've always looked at it like poor sportsmanship. JMO

Money and fame could, perhaps, pervert justice. Gullible fans can be swayed by words and adoration, even drivers can defend their own and protect their own interest, but, you can't BS karma. It has a way of evening things out over time. Sooner or later we all get pay back for our deeds. Good for good, bad for bad.

I watched his speech 3 times and I don't see all this emotion and choking up that is being described. I see more of someone trying to follow what is written on 2 sheets of paper, who keeps losing his place and struggling to keep eye contact with his audience. Certainly didn't make me want to grab the Kleenex. I think he looked guilty. I doubt the Ward family was impressed either. God Bless each of the Ward family and all of Kevin's friends.

Well the conference has only been over half hour. And people R calling in on SXM calling Smoke a murder. How do U police over what does A track like Atlanta take in roughly 50.000 fans? How does any one know what a person or child is about to yell? This is the real problem . What good is it to remove anyone once the damage is done.All it will take is 1 person. Did U see the shape Tony is in. I am wondering if he should be racing . And I will admit that I am one of the people that said he needs to be back in the car . Now not so sure. J/S
OK, I'll admit, I under-estimated how self-righteous some people can be. I don't understand how anyone can see the video of his speech today and have the audacity to question the impact this tragic accident has had on him and suggest he's trying to win an Oscar for his performance!

The only response I have is borrowed from Matthew 7:1-2 "Do not judge so that you will not be judged. "For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.…"

A lot of people R just as guilty of passing hate & judgement. Hating a man for adjusting a race car, winning a race & cheating on his taxes. Now the shoes on the other foot its Tony getting bashed for something he did .No matter what anyone says. The ONLY person that knows the truth is Tony & a dead child. And they R the ONLY 2 people that know the truth. maybe Tony is paying for his own fans hatred. Who knows ?

Everyone's been saying "only two people know what happened", but I'm not totally buying that. I think everything happened so fast, maybe no one is exactly sure. Whatever Kevin's intentions were, it obviously didn't happen the way he expected it to. They questioned Tony within hours, and the evidence seems to support his statements. After three weeks, the investigation is not indicating anything new.

True, the Ward family and Tony have to live with this, and I believe Tony is trying to cope in the best way he possibly can. It is possible the Ward family may believe a civil suit against Tony, his sponsors, the track - anyone with deep pockets - will help their healing. I think the pill they will have to swallow in this is that they will find out what % of responsibility a judge/jury will determine was really Kevin's, and this will affect the judgment. I am hoping for 100%, because personally, I feel holding Tony, or any other party they accuse, financially liable for Kevin’s temper and actions is absolutely totally wrong.

Sorry Tony..
You are stuttering and mumbling.
Don't do that in court brother.
You'll get more years in the slammer.
Very sad time for you... But what goes around does come around... Doesn't it just..ice !!!!
That's exactly what we are going to see.

My grandmother taught me IF YOU HAVE NOTHING NICE TO SAY DON'T SAY ANYTHING. Can't you wait until all the facts come out from the police? I will stand by what started the whole thing. Mr. Ward getting out of his car! None of this would be an issue now!

I agree whole heartedly. And even if Kevin had just gotten out of the car he would be alive today. It was the walking down the track and toward the moving cars that resulted in the terrible outcome. He alone assumed all responsibility for those actions. He had been involved in racing since he was a child and knew that vision on the drivers right side is obscured. I haven't heard any one even venture a guess what he was trying to prove.

The thing is did Tony swing the car to spray dirt on Kevin? Only Tony knows the truth. Even if he did he did Nothing Wrong it was an accident. Tony has probably sprayed dirt at drivers 1000 times. Drivers have been getting out of there sprint cars mad for years. Kevin did it again it went horribly bad. IT happened its life.
People either farm or logging . Farmers who have been farming their whole life have accidents same with loggers . ACCIDENTS HAPPENS TO THE MOST EXPERIENCE PEOPLE !
I personally do not have a problem if Tony did swing the car around . I would not think any less towards him. I am not going to trash Kevin for doing anything that other driver have done for yrs. I just do not get why people have to make up the BS they R making up . I think people R scared to death of the truth ! I am not that kind of person ! I want the truth the REAL truth thats all. And YES Cat I do believe Tony knows exactly what happened. I understand his lawyer R not letting him say anything. But look at Tony he has aged 10 years . He can barely talk with out his voice shaking. I do not believe he is just grieving I think he is carrying a heavy the burden of guilt. I have worked with people that have buried a child , spouse & parents . None of them needed to grieve for 4 weeks . Most of them came back to work after the 3 days you were given for a death of family. I honestly believe there is a lot more to this story that is not being told . JMO
