ROCHESTER, Minn. -- NASCAR team owner Jack Roush has been transferred to the Mayo Clinic following surgery on facial injuries he sustained in a plane crash in Wisconsin.

Roush Fenway Racing said in a statement Thursday that Roush was taken to the Mayo Clinic on Wednesday and is in serious but stable condition. The team does not say what kind of injuries he has from the accident Tuesday night.

Roush's passenger, friend Brenda Stricklin, was treated and released from a Wisconsin hospital Wednesday afternoon.

Roush was attending the Experimental Aircraft Association's annual AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis. The aviation buff also survived a crash in 2002.

The EAA said a Beechcraft Premier business jet registered to Roush Fenway Racing, LLC was involved in a landing accident at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh at about 6:15 p.m. local time Tuesday.
