Rick Hendrick Plane Crash and Movie

Rick Hendrick

In October of 2004 a Hendrick Motorsports plane crashed on its way to a NASCAR race, killing all 10 people aboard.

Hendrick Motorsports identified the dead as: Ricky Hendrick, Rick Hendrick’s son and a retired NASCAR driver; John Hendrick, Rick Hendrick’s brother and president of the organization; Kimberly and Jennifer Hendrick, John Hendrick’s 22-year-old twin daughters; Joe Jackson, an executive with DuPont, sponsor of Gordon’s car; Jeff Turner, general manager of Hendrick Motorsports; Randy Dorton, the team’s chief engine builder; Scott Lathram, a pilot for NASCAR driver Tony Stewart; and pilots Dick Tracy and Liz Morrison.

Rick Hendrick owned the following teams: Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Terry Labonte and Brian Vickers.

In 2004, Hendrick had been on a season-long celebration of its 20th anniversary in NASCAR’s top series. The organization had won five of the series’ top titles, three truck series titles, and one Busch series crown.

A documentary has been created in honor of Henrick’s 25th anniversary in NASCAR called, “Together: The Hendrick Motorsports Story” and includes the good and bad the most successful NASCAR team.  It is a feature length film and should appeal to stock car race fans and those who are not.  It also looks at the emotional setbacks in Henderick’s life. 

The film is narrated by Tom Cruise and is scheduled for release on October 31, 2009.

    2. Provost Dr. Tom Burish stated in the release that “While Notre Dame would have preferred to maintain its independence, the financial realities of the world of college football made the decision a necessity.” He also said that “The longstanding tradition of the schools in the Big 10 conference best fit that of the Irish program”, according to reports.

      Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
