Mother of Kevin Ward Jr.: ‘I have no other choice’ but to settle with Tony Stewart

The family of Kevin Ward Jr. agreed in court today to settle a wrongful death lawsuit, but Ward Jr.’s mother told the judge she felt like she had “no other choice.”

Ward Jr. was 20 years old when he was killed in a sprint car race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park on Aug. 9, 2014.

He walked out on a live race track after his car was sidelined in a collision with Stewart. On Stewart’s next lap around the track, his car struck Ward Jr., killing him.

The family filed a lawsuit a year later.

“Our ultimate goal in this process was to hold Tony Stewart accountable for what he did to our son on that night,” mother Pamela Ward said today.
