NASCAR's Roush injured in Wisconsin plane crash

MILWAUKEE — NASCAR team owner Jack Roush was in serious but stable condition after walking away from a plane crash in Wisconsin on Tuesday night.

"There are injuries. Possible surgery," Roush Fenway Racing president Geoff Smith said in a text message to The Associated Press. "But he walked out of the plane."

Smith confirmed that the plane belonged to Roush, and he was flying it. Smith said Roush's injuries include facial lacerations.

Roush, an aviation buff, was attending the Experimental Aircraft Association's annual AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis., this week.

In a statement on the EAA Web site, officials said a Beechcraft Premier business jet registered to Roush Fenway Racing, LLC was involved in a landing accident at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.

The accident occurred at approximately 6:15 p.m. CDT, the statement said.

According to the EAA, the National Transportation Safety Board and Winnebago County Sheriff's Department confirmed that two occupants on board were Roush and Brenda Strickland of Plymouth, Mich.

"Each exited the aircraft following the accident," the statement said. "Both were transported to local hospitals, with Roush in serious but stable condition and Strickland with non-life threatening injuries. The NTSB is leading the investigation into the accident."

It is the second close call for Roush, who crashed a plane into a pond in Alabama in 2002 and was rescued by an ex-Marine who lived nearby. Roush continued flying after that accident.

Roush owns several aircraft, including a World War II-vintage P-51 Mustang

Jack needs to give up flying, this is his 2nd, strike 3 and you're OUT.
yeah I think the second time he landed in a pond and e ex marine saved him. Don't quote me but I think it happened in 2002.

Yikes, I'm glad everyone is okay. I love Jack Roush, he's a great guy...not to mention, he designs some of the hottest mustangs.

Ok, I don't fly. For one, my dad passed away in an airplane accident. (his plane). No thanks. I'll stick to the ground. I think Mr. Roush should do the same thing.

I'm supposed to go to Hawaii in May :uhh:

2nd it would only take 1 almost for me to stay on the ground!
yeah me2, but when you get in a position/status in life that makes you think "I'm God" you tend to walk around like your 10ft tall and bulletproof, but I saw the video of him today and he looks like he shrunk a few feet and was bleeding.

I say BS as well, but if he does I won't look at Roush mustang's the same anymore.

Same here. But Roush is a hard core Ford guy though (which is why I really like him). Ive met him at a Ford Fun week when they still were around. He signed my hat (I was much younger).

This is why I get liquored up before I fly. If that was my plane I wouldn't even know it was going down. Best case scenario there.
