According to multiple unconfirmed reports, Tony Stewart was involved in an on-track incident with driver Kevin Ward on Saturday night, with Stewart's car allegedly striking Ward after he got out of his car to confront Stewart about earlier contact between the two.

The Ontario County (N.Y.) Sheriff's Department confirmed to FOXSports.com late Saturday night that it is investigating an incident that occured during a dirt-track race at Canandaigua (N.Y.) Motorsports Park, reportedly involving three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Tony Stewart and another driver.

According to multiple unconfirmed reports, Stewart was involved in an on-track incident with 17-year-old driver Kevin Ward Jr., with Stewart's car allegedly striking Ward after he got out of his car to confront Stewart about earlier contact between the two.

Tyler Graves, a sprint-car racer and friend of Ward's, told Sporting News in a phone interview that he was sitting in the Turn 1 grandstands and saw everything.

"Tony pinched him into the frontstretch wall, a racing thing," Graves said. "The right rear tire went down, he spun on the exit of (Turn) 2. They threw the caution and everything was toned down. Kevin got out of his car. … He was throwing his arms up all over the place at Tony for most of the corner.

"I know Tony could see him. I know how you can see out of these cars. When Tony got close to him, he hit the throttle. When you hit a throttle on a sprint car, the car sets sideways. It set sideways, the right rear tire hit Kevin, Kevin was sucked underneath and was stuck under it for a second or two and then it threw him about 50 yards."

Police would confirm only that they are investigating an undisclosed incident that took place at approximately 10 p.m. during a sprint-car race at the half-mile dirt track north of Syracuse.

Wow. Wonder if he's going to be charged manslaughter or murder. I could see premeditated murder since Tony obviously had forethought. This ain't good for anybody. And my heart goes out to the Ward family.

Sounds like I may be wrong about the forethought. It's hard to tell watching the tape. Did Tony swerve to hit him. Or did Tony not see him in time and the swerve came from hitting Keven. Glad I won't be part of that legal bog.

wish we had a dif angle, but ppl there say he gunned it .... Stewarts about to lose everything to this kids Fam and his freedom.... unbelievable man

Will they have different camera angles? We go to sprint car races that probably has no camera or one at most. If they do have another angle I'm looking forward to seeing it. That one is so inconclusive, unless there may be something to see blown up and watching it frame by frame.

holy shyt

i stand corrected

you can hear him gun it

no question about it

35 secs into the clip

Dam, you sure can. I just listened with my headphones.

Wanted to add, I still am not sure if he gassed it before he hit the kid or right after. If after he could claim Kevin came out of nowhere, he didn't see him until he hit him, and he gassed it to get the car off of the kid as quickly as possible. Slim, I know, but I've heard worse. Something like this in the hands of a good lawyer might get him manslaughter. Or murder two.

The kid shouldn't have been out in the middle of the track. It seems like Stewart wanted to scare the kid...but went too far!

Stewart's past anger issues ( some of them caught on video ) will not help him one bit.
