Roush remains stable after plane crash


NASCAR team owner Jack Roush remains hospitalized in serious but stable condition after walking away from a plane crash Tuesday night.

In a statement, Roush Fenway Racing said Roush is under observation for facial injuries he sustained in the accident.

The team says Roush's passenger, friend Brenda Stricklin, was treated and released from a Wisconsin hospital Wednesday afternoon.

Roush - an aviation buff who survived another crash in 2002 - was attending the Experimental Aircraft Association's annual AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis.

According to the EAA, a Beechcraft Premier business jet registered to Roush Fenway Racing, LLC was involved in a landing accident at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh around 6:15 p.m. Tuesday.
