NASCAR Team Owner

The Moment He Lost Control

7/28/2010 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained several photos of the moments before and after NASCAR team owner Jack Roush crashed his airplane yesterday in Wisconsin ... a crash Roush was lucky enough to walk away from.

Jack Roush - Plane Crash
In the photos -- which were taken around 6:15 PM on Tuesday at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh -- you can see the plane veer to one side while attempting to land ... and then violently crash.

Roush -- who's the owner of Roush Fenway Racing -- and his only passenger Brenda Strickland were both transported to a local hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Incredibly, this is the second time Roush has crashed a plane and lived to tell about it ... back in 2002, his aircraft ended up in a lake in Alabama, where he was rescued by a retired Marine who lived close by.

Clearly it looks like he is more of a threat to the ground than he is to the air.....

Looks like he was on the backside of the power curve. Got to slow on final. Jets today can practically fly themselves. All control performance. Every power setting and pitch angle results in an expected performance from the airplane. Pilots like myself are required to attend Flight Safety twice a year for a week sometimes two weeks depending. There is no way Roush does that. Hire a professional, fly co-pilot and you still have the fun but with safety. Come on Jack.... Think Buddy

I live in the city the crash occurred (few miles away from the EAA). The papers say the lady on board is his good friend's wife.

Brenda Strickland is Jack's executive assistant. She has worked with him for many years now. I sincerely hope that they are both okay.

This dude is 68 years. Let me give him some good and free advices.
1) Quit flying.

This dude is a big time coke head - I snorted a couple 1-95 rails with him in '07 after the Bud Shootout - no wonder he keeps crashing

I tend to think that to get where Jack Roush is pretty well means he's not a dumazzzz, but it's quite probable that to get where you're at (on TMZ making statements like that about people you don't know.) would take a total dumazzzz!!!
