    Just noticed that the plane's tail number is N8JR.

    Pretty cool. Well, not now, it's a very large insurance claim.

    Apparently it landed but skidded off the runway. Likely too much speed or some kind of equipment failure.

    That's pretty scary. Just another reminder that tomorrow's not promised to anyone, and you never know when it's gonna be your time. I'm really glad that it wasn't Dale Jr.'s and his family's time.

    Glad they’re OK, I flashed back to the Kulwicki crash when I saw the headline earlier, as that was also in Eastern TN leading up to a Bristol race. Thank God this was a different outcome.

    When I heard that Junior's plane crashed my heart sank like a rock thinking of the Kulwicki and Hendrick plane crashes.

    Just hope all is well with them.

    From the picture, it looks like the most intense flames were at the rear and burned forward. That would give passengers and pilots time to get out.
    Thank goodness all are OK.

    You don't think about it but our lives can be taken in a moment. This is about as good as news as possible regarding the crash.

    Terrifying. I constantly worry about the amount of air travel these people use. So glad they are ok.

    The NASCAR community, including all of us, dodged a big one today.
    Just the thought of what might have been, is devastating.
    Thank God all survived!
     
  31. My heart nearly skipped a beat when I first read the headline. Thank god Jr and his family are alright. His dad was watching over him today
