'Purge: Anarchy' Star

And Here's Why ...

EXCLUSIVE

Don't blame Tony Stewart for the accident that killed Kevin Ward Jr. -- blame Ward ... at least that's the way the star of "Purge: Anarchy" sees it.

Frank Grillo broke down the horrific video of the Canandaigua Speedway tragedy with us Sunday night outside Madeo -- and he immediately stated, "Totally not Tony Stewart's fault!"

There's been a ton of speculation Stewart lost his temper, and cops are still investigating ... but Grillo explains why he thinks Tony did the best he could, under the circumstances.

Interesting theory.

If anyone thinks Tony purposely hit a moron that walked onto the track then I'd say you know nothing about cars. Kevin's anger issues ended up being the death of him.

Tony stepped on the gas and not the brake. He should be in jail for manslaughter.
