HMS Plane Goes Down

Hendrick Motorsports Plane Crashes

Just before leaving to go to church tonight, I watched Jimmie Johnson win the Subway 500. He did no go to Victory Lane and NASCAR announced that a Hendricks Motor Sports plane was missing from radar shortly before the race began. I wondered who might have been on the plane and what happened to make it go missing.

Once I got home I learned what had happened and about the ten people whose lives were lost. Suddenly, the points race doesn't mean that much. I'm certain Jimmie, Jeff, Rick and the others would be more than happy to have pulled in DNFs.

Funny, I've never met them before in my life, and yet my heart goes out to them.
