Reply-to:Wouldnt the evidence have to prove beyond any reasonable doubt that Tony knew or should have known or had reasonable expectation that when he continued around on the caution lap that someone would be on the track or that a person would charge or ( run head on into oncoming traffic on a racetrack ) and have time to form intent? Thats just not believable to me on any level. Fairly obvious that anyone with half a wit would realize this accident could have only been avoided if Kevin had stayed in his car and wasnt so hopped up on anger (quite possibly not just anger ) and wanting to display it. His temper cost him his life and has and is causing his family , Tony and countless others such agony and pain with his selfish act.
I don't think they have to or will try to prove that there was any intent to do harm. I think it will be more about negligence or that he didn't react to Ward being on the track like any other driver would have. If they believe and call witnesses like Friesen who claim Tony should have seen him and didn't react like he should have then they may charge him. But if it does go to trial for every witness like Friesen they can dig up the defense could call 10 that would testify the other way that Tony did all he could and his actions weren't negligent.
