Do you know that Ricky Hendrick, a famous NASCAR driver killed in a plane crash in Oct. 24, 2004  2004 was Emily Maynard's ex-fiance?



Here's a few information about Ricky Hendrick from Wikipedia:
Joseph Riddick Hendrick IV (April 2, 1980 – October 24, 2004), also known as Ricky Hendrick, was an American NASCAR stock car driver and partial owner at Hendrick Motorsports, a team that his father Rick Hendrick founded. He was born in Charlotte, North Carolina on April 2, 1980, and began his career in racing at the age of 15. He competed in both the Busch Series and Craftsman Truck Series before his death from a airplane accident on October 24, 2004. He was killed with seven other family members and friends during the accident.
It was a very tragic experience for a young lady to have left by her fiance who have been together since 15 years old and got engaged at the age of 19. The couple's attachment didn't just end there. When Ricky Hendrick died in the said accident, a week later, Emily found out that she was pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl in June 2005.

Emily's experience was very tragic but with the help of the reality show The Bachelor, she may be able to find love with Brad Womack.
