0820-tony-stewart-getty-01Tony Stewart will NOT race at Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend -- pulling out of his 3rd consecutive race since killing Kevin Ward Jr. during a race on August 9th. 

The NASCAR driver has been under heavy fire after the Aug. 9th incident in Upstate New York -- when he smashed into Ward Jr. who had gotten out of his car to confront Stewart on the track. 

Tony's racing team had previously said Stewart needed time to grieve -- and said it will be "up to Tony" when he decides to start racing again.

How is he still getting blamed? If someone runs out onto the highway to "confront someone" and get hit, who is the idiot? Ward was a moron, RIP idiot

Tmz has reported that the there was a GoPro camera on Stewart's car. What happened to it? The Sheriff says he is not aware of one. Tmz reported that Stewart always uses a camera on his car. Well where is the footage? If it is not in custody, then there is a cover up happening here. Let's hope that investigative reporters follow up on this.

TMZ into building race cars? They say a lot of things! I sorry this kids family, in racing accidents happen, tempers flare but you never leave your car unless it is on fire and you surely don't walk on the track with others cars running even at yellow flag speed.

Ward gets out of his car, runs into the line of racing cars while wearing black during the night to confront Stewart--well, that's what you get for being stupid (and possibly suicidal), you get hit & sometimes luck is not on your side so it's a death sentence.

Not surprised...it's a short track. It would be totally douche-y and disrepectful to come back for his first race as a short track. I'd be a little surprised if he sat out the next race too...but the rest of the season would the real shocker.
