As Twitchy reported, many Twitter users, including sports reporters, argued that Tony Stewart should not race today after being involved in an accident that killed driver Kevin Ward last night. Other Twitter users couldn’t help but make Dale Earnhardt, Sr. comparisons after Dale Earnhardt, Jr. tweeted out his condolences after the tragic accident.

While many are questioning a seemingly callous “business as usual” attitude, not everyone is immediately calling for Tony Stewart’s head.

From the LA Times:

Tony Stewart will not compete in a NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International on Sunday after being involved in an incident that claimed the life of a driver during a race in New York on Saturday night.

The manager for Stewart’s racing team, Greg Zipadelli, told the Associated Press that the three-time NASCAR champion will not compete Sunday. Regan Smith will drive Stewart’s No. 14 car in the race.
