NASCAR superstar Tony Stewart has gone into hiding after the weekend crash that killed fellow driver Kevin Ward Jr in a sprint car race in upstate New York.

Stewart’s private plane flew into his hometown of Columbus, Indiana, on Monday and luggage was loaded on to it and it then flew out again, airport director Brian Payne told MailOnline.

Stewart is ‘staying with friends’, his team’s spokesman Mike Arning said. He still has made no decision on when to return to racing.

‘It was only here 10 or 15 minutes,’ said Payne. ‘I don’t know whether Stewart was on board, but he certainly did not get off.’

Payne would not say where the plane was headed. According to the website FlightAware which follows the movements of private planes, Stewart’s 10-seater Dassault-Breguet Falcon 50, plane which can cost $6million or more, cannot be tracked publicly ‘per request from the owner/operator’.

County sheriff Philip C. Povero announced his office will continue the investigation into Kevin Ward Jr’s shocking death for at least two more weeks.

‘Investigators continue to seek witnesses, gather evidence and develop racetrack crash reconstruction,’ Povero said.

Kevin Ward Sr told that his son was dressed in an orange and black suit with fluorescent stripes down the sides that glowed under the lights.
