Tony Stewart, Kevin Ward Jr.'s family settle wrongful-death suit
 OTHER 
Posted by:  Bob Barney-RaceRap.com on April 5, 2018 at 6:49am

Five weeks before trial, Tony Stewart and the parents of Kevin Ward Jr. have agreed to settle the wrongful-death lawsuit against the three-time NASCAR Cup champion.

U.S. District Court Judge David Hurd set a settlement hearing in Utica, New York, for April 12 to put the terms of the pending settlement in the public record. A settlement would end the civil lawsuit filed about a year after Ward's death at age 20 on Aug. 9, 2014, in an Empire Super Sprints race at Canandaigua (N.Y.) Motorsports Park.

The trial was scheduled to begin May 7, and a settlement keeps both sides from having to testify and watch video of the accident. It also keeps a jury from having to determine whether Stewart was reckless in an accident where Ward had marijuana in his system. A grand jury didn't indict Stewart, clearing him of any criminal charges, but Ward's parents claim that Stewart tried to intimidate their son by swerving at Ward, who had walked onto the track after a crash to express his displeasure with Stewart.
