Ontario County (NY) sheriff, Phil Povero, said in a statement early Sunday that the 20-year-old driver that Tony Stewart hit on Saturday night was transferred by ambulance to a nearby hospital and was "dead on arrival."

Kevin Ward Jr. wrecked during a sprint car race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park on Saturday night, which appeared to be caused by Stewart. Ward got out of his car, approached Stewart's car on the next lap and was angrily gesturing at Stewart under a yellow flag. Stewart reportedly appeared to hit the gas as he went by, causing the rear of the car to slide and catch Ward with the back tire, dragging him under the car, throwing him 25-50 feet, and apparently killing him instantly. There is an ongoing investigation and Stewart's status for Sunday's race at Watkins Glen is unknown. Stewart is said to be very upset and is cooperating with authorities, while no charges have been filed as of yet. Our thoughts are with the victim's family and friends in one of the most bizarre tragedies in sports history.

Reigning NASCAR Whelen Euro Series Champion Anthony Kumpen will return to the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) in 2017 thanks to the Nexteer Road to Daytona program.

He benefited from the prize awarded by NWES for his 2016 title to help him building this campaign which will include at least two races at the wheel of the Precision Performance Motorsports' #46 LeasePlan Chevrolet Camaro at Daytona and at Mid-Ohio. Before his European title defense campaign in Valencia in April, he will race for the second time in the NXS season opener on February 25 at Daytona. In 2016, the Belgian finished a solid 26th in his first ever outing on the 2.5-mile oval. During the NWES summer break he will return to the US to enter his first NXS road course race on August 12 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. The two-time Euro-NASCAR Champion aims to capitalize on his road course experience and success to bring home a strong result.-Kumpen PR

In the midst of a busy off season that saw Premium Motorsports move its race shop to Mooresville, NC, owner Jay Robinson confirmed to Frontstretch.com that Reed Sorenson will pilot the No. 55 car beginning with the season-opening Daytona 500 next month, with more races possible, dependent on sponsorship.

Though Sorenson will be competing in the No. 55 car, it is the No. 15 car that has a guaranteed starting position into all 36 races after Premium Motorsports’ purchase of the charter from HScott Motorsports, which shut down over the off-season. The organization decided to keep the number 15, getting rid of the No. 98, which attempted to qualify for 33 races in 2016, 29 with Cole Whitt. Lee Leslie will sit atop the pit box of the No. 55 car. Having no ties with any manufacture, the team will run Toyotas at the four superspeedway races in 2017, moving to Chevrolet in the other 32 events.

He attempted to make his debut with the organization at Talladega Superspeedway in October 2016, but failed to qualify after a brake issue during time trials prevented him from keeping pace with the rest of the Truck Series field.
