As NASCAR prepared for another day of racing a little over 12 hours after Tony Stewart struck and killed a driver in a race on a dirt track in Canandaigua, N.Y., drivers paused to share their thoughts on Twitter.
Most reached out with sympathetic messages for the family of Kevin Ward Jr., the 20-year-old who died.
We will all loose someone in our time. When a loss is sudden and unexpected, the pain & sadness is suffocating. Prayers for the Ward family.
