It was standing room only as hundreds turned out to mourn the loss of Kevin Ward Jr., at South Lewis High School. The Port Leyden racer died after being struck by Tony Stewart’s car at Canandaigua Motorsports Park.

Friends and family honored Ward by wearing orange shirts with his #13 or ribbons, that Ward’s sister told reporters ‘the orange and white are bright colors and even against black clothing it shines through.’

Ward’s friend told reporters you couldn’t help but love Ward. ‘If you weren’t laughing, he’d make you laugh.’

During the service, the crowd sang George Strait‘s ‘Love Without End, Amen,’ for Ward’s parents. At the end of the service Ward’s sister said ‘if there wasn’t a dirt track in heaven, there is now.’

Orange, black and white balloons were released following the funeral services after the crowd counted to 13.
