    The FAA confirms everyone on board was killed. The list of passengers is as follows: Ricky Hendrick, John Hendrick, Kimberley Hendrick, Jennifer Hendrick, Dick Tracy, Joe Jackson, Liz Morrison, Jeff Turner, Randy Dorton, and Scott Lathum.

    very sad day. My prayers go out to all the families involved. RIP

    Randy Dorton was the director of Hendrick Motorsports' engine program, not just a builder.

    Sad day for Hendrick Motorsports... My thoughts and prayers go out to all the families.
