Nascar Star Tony Stewart Kills Driver During Confrontation on Racetrack

This never happens, right?
I've never heard of anyone getting out of their car on a track during a race, unless it's an accident, and they are trying to get off the track, a very dangerous place for a pedestrian :(
Yeah, the more I think about it the crazier it seems!
that looked a lot like cold blooded murder to me.
I agree but it will be impossible to prove intent.
Dirt track racing is dangerous!
I guess it is a lot more common, than I thought for drivers to get out of their cars, and berate another driver, Stewart himself did this quite a bit.
They need a new race rule: Stay in your car, unless you need to exit it due to an accident/breakdown, in that case, you must leave the track in a fast manner with no interaction with others, or penalties will come into play.
It does look like murder -- but as Geege points out, it's hard to ascertain intent.
