I watched that video and a few others. I couldn't find one with the actual impact sadly. It seems every source has cut that part out. Still, Kevin Ward literally ran out into the track and it looked like he almost got hit by another car before he was hit by Tony Stewart. You can't just run out in-front of a race car like that and expect the driver to be able to react in such a short time. Furthermore, it was a dirt track - so even if Tony was able to brake - the braking distance from his speed to a full stop would be much longer than if they were on a paved track.

I think Tony will get off if he hires the right attorney, the real question is will he be able to recover from this socially. He has probably already received death threats and his sponsors are probably waiting on the wire to see where this all falls. I think, ultimately, it was an unfortunate situation caused by flared emotions, temporarily blinding Kevin Ward from acting rationally which ended up costing him his life.

Anger

We have all done stupid things because of anger. A good reminder for us to all practice keeping some control when angry.
