Stewart Says Ward's Death Will Affect Him Forever

Tony Stewart says the death of Kevin Ward Jr. will "affect my life forever" as he returned to the track for the first time since his car struck and killed the fellow driver during a sprint-car race in New York. Stewart spoke Friday for the first time Ward died at an Aug. 9 dirt-track event in upstate New York. The three-time NASCAR champion has not raced since Ward's death. Stewart will race in Atlanta on Sunday night for the first time in three weeks. He says he took time out of respect for Ward's family and so he could cope with the tragedy. Stewart said he could not answer questions about the incident and he left after reading a short statement.
