Coverage denied in race-car case.

A FEDERAL district court in New York ruled that race car driver Anthony Wayne "Tony" Stewart was not covered under a Commercial General Liability insurance policy for a lawsuit by the estate of Kevin A. Ward, Jr., a fellow driver who was killed when Stewart's car struck him during a race. Stewart denied the central allegations of the complaint as well as any liability for the incident.

According to the four-count complaint filed by Ward's estate, Ward, Stewart and 22 other drivers were participating in a race when Stewart's and Ward's race cars made contact, wrecking Ward's vehicle. Ward exited his disabled race car, walked down the track on foot, and was fatally injured when Stewart's car struck him. The Ward action alleged that Stewart had been negligent or reckless in striking Ward.
