  • CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. (AP) — Racing fans wore orange to honor the 20-year-old driver hit and killed at an upstate New York race by a car driven by NASCAR champion Tony Stewart.
    Canandaigua Motorsports Park asked fans to wear Kevin Ward Jr.’s team color on Saturday night, one week after the driver was killed during a race. Track officials say the tribute was held with the blessings and some encouragement from Ward’s family.
    The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports that fans walked through the gates wearing orange jackets, hoodies and T-shirts. Some of them customized their clothes with designs or messages.
