Kevin Ward Jr., the 20-year-old racing prospect killed in an accident by NASCAR star Tony Stewart, is being mourned across his native New York State and beyond.
While no criminal investigation into Stewart's conduct is underway, Ward's relatives and friends are taking Tony to task for his actions in the wake of the tragedy.
The young driver’s aunt posted to Facebook Sunday after the crash, “Thanks for thinking of our family [Tony] Stewart when you decided to be a d!ck!”
She called her late nephew “one of a kind, a true race car driver, a p!ss head and a sweetie all in one, a young man who will be truly missed by many!”
Kevin Ward's parents, who were reportedly in the stands watching the race, were a bit more diplomatic, according to local ABC affiliate WHAM:
"We appreciate the prayers and support we are receiving from the community, but we need time to grieve and wrap our heads around all of this."
As previously reported, in an incident filmed by a fan, Tony Stewart killed Kevin Ward Jr. accidentally on the race track this weekend in Canandaigua, N.Y.
His car swiped Ward's, which spun out of control, at which point Kevin exited his car and began roaming the track on foot, pointing at Stewart. Then tragedy struck.
