The investigation into Kevin Ward's death after he was struck and killed by Tony Stewart Saturday night could take two more weeks, according to Ontario County (N.Y.) Sheriff Philip Povero.

Povero issued a statement but didn't take questions about the incident Tuesday afternoon. He said that there were no details to release and that after the investigation was complete, the OCSD would meet with the district attorney and present all of its findings.

He said at that time more information may be released.

Povero reiterated Monday that there were no facts at the present time to find any criminal intent in the matter. After Stewart and Ward were racing together at the Canandaigua Motorsports Park, Ward crashed and got out of his car to confront Stewart. He was clipped by Stewart's right-rear tire.

On Monday, the Ontario County coroner ruled that Ward died of massive blunt force trauma. Funeral services for Ward are set for his hometown of Port Leyden, N.Y., on Thursday with visitation hours on Wednesday.

Stewart has not made an announcement regarding his participation in Sunday's Sprint Cup Series race at Michigan after sitting out at Watkins Glen. He has suspended his sprint car racing schedule.
