NASCAR Team Owner Walks Away From His Second Plane Crash in a Decade

They say third time’s the charm, but I seriously think NASCAR team owner Jack Roush would not like to try his luck again.

Not many people can boast that they survived a plane accident but Mr. Jack Roush did it twice in less than a decade.

The 68-year-old Roush-Fenway Racing team co-owner’s recent brush with death happened Tuesday night when the plane he was piloting crashed at Wittman Regional Airport in Wisconsin at about 6:15 pm CDT.

Miraculously, Roush and his passenger, a Brenda Strickland, were able to exit the planes on their own.

The two were transported to a local hospital where their injuries were treated.

Both are said to be in stable condition after the crash.

This is the second plane crash that Roush has been involved in.

The first one happened in 2002 when he crashed his plane into a pond in Alabama where he was rescued by an ex-Marine who lived nearby.

Roush is a known aviation enthusiast and owns several aircrafts.

But he may want to consider getting his own pilot the next time he flies; I’m guessing he don’t want that third plane crash to happen too soon.
