Tony Stewart set to learn fate

Tony Stewart will know his fate next week, after the Ontario County Office of Sheriff finished the investigation into Kevin Ward Jr's death.

  • Published: , Refreshed:

The three-time NASCAR champion was involved in the incident that killed Ward Jr at a dirt-track race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park in New York in August.

Stewart, 43, pulled out of several Sprint Cup Series races following the incident, but has since appeared twice on the circuit and is in action for Sunday's MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland Speedway, Joliet.

But depending on the outcome of the investigation, his availability for the Sylvania 300 on September 21 remains up in the air.

"The District Attorney's Office, which has been meeting throughout the investigative process with members of the sheriff's office, will make a statement late next week advising what action will be taken regarding the investigation," a statement from the sheriff's office read.

Stewart is 26th in the Sprint Cup Series standings.
