KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (AP) Tony Stewart said Monday he never considered retiring from racing following the death of Kevin Ward Jr.

The three-time NASCAR champion talked with reporters Monday at his first news conference since a grand jury decided last week not to charge him in Ward's death. The 20-year-old driver was struck and killed by Stewart's car during a sprint car race in upstate New York on Aug. 9.

"This is what I've done all my life. This is what I've done for 36 years, and I wouldn't change anything about it," he said. "I love what I do. I love driving race cars, but I think it might change right now as far as how much of it and what I do, but there was never a thought in my head about stopping. That would take the life out of me."
