News: Stewart spent three weeks in seclusion at his Indiana home after the car he was driving struck and killed Kevin Ward Jr. at a dirt track in upstate New York on Aug. 9. He describes those weeks as the darkest of his life. Stewart told the Associated Press on Thursday in his first interview since a grand jury decided he would not be charged in Ward's death. Impact: "I know 100 percent in my heart and in my mind that I did not do anything wrong. This was 100 percent an accident," Stewart said. The NASCAR owner/driver is just beginning to open up about the details and feelings he's had the last several weeks. Due to legal restrictions, Stewart has not been able to talk about events of that evening of Ward's death and so dealing with those emotions and moving on has been difficult.(RotoWire, )
