Last week, it was reported that the two parties had agreed on a settlement that would end the civil lawsuit that was filed a year after Ward's death.

Ward was struck and killed by Stewart after Ward stepped out onto the track during a race at the Canandaigua Motorsports Park on Aug. 9, 2014.

In the joint motion filed Tuesday, the two sides present several reasons for wanting to delay or cancel the meeting scheduled for Thursday. They claim their settlement agreement does not require the court’s approval, that they wish to keep the settlement agreement confidential, and that an in-person settlement meeting would result in inconvenience and “significant costs” to both sides.
