Original post:

It has been a crazy week for Jack Roush! While on final to the Osh Kosh Air Show which he attends every year, his plane crashed (appears to have stalled) just before landing. His right wing dropped and caught the ground and the plane did a couple of flat like cartwheels and ended up facing the wrong direction and it broke in half.

Jack has a fully restored P-51 Mustang at the show and he also had a tent with several of his Roush displays there. Jack and his friend were able to walk away from the plane crash (unbelievable when you see the photos of the crash).

His team also got their first win at Pocono in a very exciting race. Greg Biffle took first place and right before crossing the finish line said “This ones for Jack”.

We wish Jack the best and a quick recovery!
