"MS: What was your reaction when you saw the wreck involving Tony Stewart and Kevin Ward, Jr?
“My reaction to that wreck was I was sick to my stomach. To hear what was going on, and not knowing exactly what happened, that’s the hardest part, to not understand the situation and not really know. I’m thinking about the Ward family and friends, and Stewart’s family and friends. This isn’t easy on anybody.”
MS: What’s your reaction to Stewart sitting out?
KAHNE: “I think that’s the right decision. With it happening just last night, I think it’s the right decision and the only decision.”
MS: As a sprint car owner, what does this mean for that brand of motorsports?
KAHNE: “The part I want to get out there is, I’m an owner, and I’ve raced these cars. And I’ve raced stock cars. By watching that video, I truly don’t understand how (the wreck) happened, and what exactly went on there. There are only a few people who would. There’s no media person that knows and no fans that know. There’s too much you can’t see. For one, Tony has no clue that (Ward) wrecks. Tony didnt wreck him. It’s only a caution, not a read flag. So you come back around and see what happened. I’ve raced these cars, Marty, and none of it makes any sense to me. I think Tony, and a couple of drivers around him are the only ones that could tell you exactly what happened.”"
