NASCAR team owner Jack Roush is OK after he was involved in a plane crash in Wisconsin, Roush Fenway Racing president Geoff Smith tells The Associated Press.

Smith didn't immediately have additional details of the crash. Roush, an aviation buff, was expected to attend the Experimental Aircraft Association's annual AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis., this week.

The EAA was expected to post a statement on its website Tuesday night.

It is the second close call for Roush, who crashed a plane into a pond in Alabama in 2002 and was rescued by an ex-Marine who lived nearby.
