NASCAR legend Jack Roush remains in the Mayo Clinic recovering from facial injuries suffered in the hard landing of his Beech Premier at AirVenture July 27 and reports suggest he's mending well. However, there appears to be little hope for his airplane, which AVweb reader Josh Berman recognized immediately when he pulled into a hotel parking lot in Merrillville, Ind., last Thursday. Berman said the trucks pulling the two trailers of wreckage bore the name of Atlanta Air Recovery, of Griffin, Ga., which is the boneyard for wrecks the authorities are investigating. Meanwhile Roush's spirits are reportedly good as he keeps track of his racing empire from the famous Rochester, Minn., clinic.

According to a car racing blog, Carl Edwards, one of the Roush Fenway team drivers, visited Roush in the hospital. "Jack is really good," Edwards said. "He is a lot better than I expected. He is Jack. We talked a lot about the race this weekend and what we were doing with our teams. He seems really good to me."
