KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) - A small jet carrying the owner of NASCAR's top team and his wife has crash landed in Key West.

Officials say the Gulfstream 150 aircraft carrying Rick and Linda Hendrick ran off the runway Monday at 7:45 p.m. The Hendricks, a pilot and co-pilot were taken to Lower Keys Medical Center. Two have minor injuries, though it was not clear who.

The other two were taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons.

Authorities say the plane is registered to Jimmie Johnson Racing II Incorporated in Charlotte, N.C. Johnson is the five-time defending NASCAR champion, and drives for Hendrick Motorsports.

Rick Hendrick is the owner of the race team.
