Mourners gather for driver hit by Stewart's car

TURIN, N.Y. (AP) — Mourners are streaming into the upstate New York high school where funeral services are being held for Kevin Ward Jr., the dirt-track racer killed by NASCAR champion Tony Stewart during a race last weekend.

Ward's casket, decorated with orange and white flowers, was carried into South Lewis Senior High School about an hour before services were to begin. Ward, a 2012 graduate, lived in nearby Port Leyden.

His family followed the casket, some of them dressed in black and orange, the 20-year-old Ward's racing colors. Dozens of mourners began arriving soon afterward.

Ward was killed Saturday night at a track 140 miles away in Canandaigua, where Stewart was racing a day before the Sprint Cup event at Watkins Glen.
