Jack Roush Comes Back on October 28

Although initially all the appearances Jack Roush had planned this year were canceled following his plane crash in July, the tycoon apparently can't stay away from the world it made him famous. Roush announced today that his first major post-crash appearance will take place on August 28, at the Town & Country Ford in Pell City, Alabama.

“Though this doesn’t give much time to plan, we hope for a good turnout of ROUSH enthusiasts and vehicles,”
Roush Performance says in an official announcement. “His appearance at the dealership is scheduled from 6-8 p.m. (local time), and there is no charge for autographs or photos.”

As some of you already know, Jack Roush was flying his Hawker Beechcraft Premier jet to the Wittman Regional Airport, when the aircraft banked to the right and then slammed into the ground. The plane broke in half when hitting the ground, but the NASCAR team owner managed to walk away from the wreckage, together with the woman who was accompanying him.

Although his injuries didn't appear to be severe, it was later found that Roush suffered serious facial trauma. Roush suffered a ruptured left eyeball, broken jaw, damaged left cheekbone and a fracture in his back. As a result of the injuries, the National Motorsports Press Association Hall of Fame inductee lost part of his vision in the left eye.

"Well, I won't be able to read power plugs in my left eye, but I always use my right eye for that because that's the dominant eye," Roush joked about his condition back in August.
