Reports have emerged ahead of today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Watkins Glen that Tony Stewart will still race, despite last night’s eventual fatality at a dirt track in upstate New York.

Stewart-Haas Racing competition director Greg Zipadelli told USA Today Sports’ Jeff Gluck, “We’re business as usual today.”

A recap of what occurred last night can be found here, with my MotorSportsTalk colleague’s Jerry Bonkowski’s analysis of the situation here.

Stewart, incidentally, missed last year’s Watkins Glen race – albeit due to his injury suffered at a dirt track race only weeks previous.

    No way he should be racing today. How could he possibly be worried about a silly car race with what took place the night before? Where is his head at??

    Business as usual… Well maybe not

    There should be no race today at all, let alone a race including a MURDERER.

    If there were any honor among drivers, if NASCAR let him race, EVER OTHER DRIVER should decline.
    Let that insane azzhole ride around the track by his self. Let NASCAR have that on TV. Hours of coverage of this murderer circling the track, stewing in his own disgusting contempt.

    Business as usual for Smoke, Zip, and all his fans.
