NASCAR team owner Jack Roush crashed his plane while landing in Wisconsin Tuesday night, leaving him in serious but stable condition.

Roush, who was set to attend the Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis., suffered injuries including facial lacerations but was able to walk out of the plane himself, according to the Washington Post.

An avid aviator, Roush owns several planes, including a World War II-era P-51 Mustang. He crashed a plane into a pond in 2002 and nearly drowned before he was rescued, but continued to fly afterward.

Known for wearing a Panama hat, Roush won NASCAR championships in 2003 and 2004 with drivers Matt Kenseth and Kurt Busch.
