  1. *Meant to say "Sprint car" here, not "Sprint Cup".  This is sort of an accident of sponsorship confusing everything.  The Nascar circuit you're probably familiar with used to be called the "Winston Cup" (the tobacco company).  When the Winston sponsorship ended, NEXTEL jumped on it and then it later became "Sprint Cup", after the telecom company Sprint.  Sprint cars (the winged dirt-track car you see below) have nothing at all to do with Sprint the telecom company or their Nascar sponsorship.  So, it's all a bit confusing. 
  2. *Meant to say "avoided Ward", not Hans here.
  3. This account below seems pretty consistent with my opinion on it.  It appears the driver just ahead of Stewart barely avoided Ward and only saw him at the last second.  Ward actually walked a bit further down after that car had passed as well.
