NASCAR’s Jack Roush upgraded to fair condition
CONCORD, N.C. — NASCAR team owner Jack Roush’s condition has been upgraded to fair as he recovers from last week’s plane crash in Wisconsin.
The 68-year-old Roush is at the Mayo Clinic. His team said Monday he will remain at the Minnesota clinic indefinitely to treat facial injuries.
Roush was attending the Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis. The aviation buff also survived a crash in 2002.
The longtime owner has been a fixture in NASCAR garages for decades. He received a boost Sunday when Roush-Fenway driver Greg Biffle won the Cup race at Pocono. Before taking the checkered flag, Biffle said, “This one’s for Jack.”
