WELCOME, North Carolina -- The following is a statement from Richard Childress, president and CEO of Richard Childress Racing, regarding the Hendrick Motorsports aviation tragedy:
It’s a tremendous loss to the Hendrick family, the Hendrick Motorsports organization and NASCAR as a whole. It’s really hard to imagine. We spend so much time together during the year that, when a tragedy like this strikes, it hits deep and it hits hard because we are so close to one another. We are like family and our thoughts and prayers go out to Rick and all of the families who lost loved ones.
