Congrats on another FANTASTIC performance, Tay!
Tony Stewart is absolutely broken up over the death of fellow sprint car driver Kevin Ward.
During a race, Stewart and Ward were racing for position when Ward crashed.
Ward, pissed off at Stewart, exited his car, walked onto the track and tried to confront Stewart… who was still speeding around the track in his car!
That's when the worst happened: Stewart's car hit Ward, leading to his death.
This is such a sad story!
Stewart has a history of being aggressive on the track, and fans of racing all know that. So, Ward’s aunt, Wendi Ward, took to her Facebook to express her STRONG feelings, saying:
This story is filled with so many WTF moments we barely know where to start!!
We'll just jump in at the beginning: 23-year-old Stephanie Peery Hamman started off the night by crashing her car into Providence Church in Church Hill, Tennessee.
After wrecking her car, she called up her husband, Steven Hamman, who was watching NASCAR across the street at the time. When he arrived at the church, he found his wife on the altar where she proceeded to
Wow! We're so glad no one was seriously injured because that looks like one heck of a wreck!
During lap 146 of the 500 lap race, Kevin Harvick in car 4 bumped into Brian Scott in car 33. After that, the dominoes began falling and cars started smashing.
After a few collisions, Aric Almirola in car 43 shot across the track and slammed into Danica, which made her lose control.
It sent her slamming into the wall pretty hard and through her incredible driving skills she was able to keep her car from spinning out.
She eventually got her destroyed vehicle to the inside of the track, out of the way of the other drivers.
Things looked pretty darn bad, watching the cars from far away… but from inside the car?
Danica really gets knocked around good, she's lucky she didn't get seriously injured. The in-car footage is pretty brutal!
Check out the video (above) and you'll see how lucky Danica is to be uninjured.
P.s. - Dale Earnhardt, Jr. went on to win the race, in case you were wondering.
Chris Evans is handsome and charming and a huge star — especially now that he's been Captain America for a few years!
That doesn't really explain why he's been chosen to be this year's Daytona 500 Grand Marshal… LOLz!
Though, really, we'd say Captain America makes better sense than the rest!
Good luck, Chris! Don't blow it and look like a handsome fool in front of fans that love watching left turns!

Danica Patrick has always been able to toe that line between being in what's traditionally considered man's sport (which is such BS!) and keeping her feminine side — but that was BEFORE she landed this Super Bowl commercial!
LOOK AT THAT BODY!!
Granted, it's totally a body suit… but still! That's what she'd look like if she became a body builder!
We guess we shouldn't say 'landed' when it comes to the commercial, because she's been repping Go Daddy (they sponsor her car, too!) for a while now. Still, it's going to air during the Super Bowl which is always a major deal!
Check out some BTS clips to see that suit in motion AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Some very sad news coming from one of NASCAR’s hottest drivers today. Trevor Bayne announced on Tuesday that he has multiple sclerosis!
But he is not letting this diagnosis stop his racing career!
Trevor, who became the youngest winner in Daytona 500 history back in 2011, plans to compete as scheduled this weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
The 22-year-old spoke to the public to discuss his commitment to keep driving despite his new health challenges. He explained:
