Tracking the NASCAR Flights

15 Jul

This weekend is the Lenox Industrial Tools 301 at Loudon International Speedway, and sure enough, earlier today I noticed my Mode S receiver had logged driver Jimmie Johnson’s Learjet (Tail #N480JJ). A short time later, I logged the Saab 2000 used by Hendricks Motorsports, tail number N511RH, en route from Concord, North Carolina, to Concord, NH. Another Hendricks plane, N508RH, made the same flight today.

Jamie McMurray also flew into Concord, from Statesville, NC, aboard a Learjet 31 Tail N1JM
Kasey Kahne arrived at 5:48 PM in Concord from Wapokoneta, OH, in a Cessna Citation III, Tail N91KK
Mark Martin flew in a Citation CJ4, Tail N4M, also from Concord to Concord
Flying in from Nashville was Darryl Waltrip, in N500DW, a Citation 5

Some drivers flew into Manchester.

A CRJ-200 registered to Tony Stewart’s racing team, Tail N60GH, arrived from Concord, NC at 8:00 PM.
A Miami Air International charter, flight BSK8903, also traveled from Concord, NC to Manchester Airport today.

Who’s your favorite driver?
