Biffle Unhurt in Rough Landing at Kentucky Airport
CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- Roush Fenway Racing says a plane NASCAR driver Greg Biffle was on had mechanical issues while landing in Kentucky on Wednesday.

The team says a mechanical failure during landing at Blue Grass Airport in Lexington caused the plane to skid to a stop on the runway.

Roush Fenway officials say neither Biffle or his two pilots were injured.
Team owner Jack Roush has survived two plane crashes, including one last year in Wisconsin in which he lost his left eye.
