The Martinsville Plane Crash
When you live here in Winston Salem, you find out very quickly that just about every NASCAR car and engine is manufactured within about a 50 mile radius of here. For the folks throughout the Carolinas, NASCAR is something more than an excuse to go slummin' and eat quiche in California.
That's why yesterday's crash of a Rick Hendricks plane, which took the lives of ten people, hits this area hard. Among the dead are Hendricks son, brother and two nieces.
I know that, regardless of team allegiance, everyone here is holding Hendricks Racing in their hearts and prayers today.
