As relayed by Bob Pockrass of The Sporting News, the story surrounding missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 does indeed have a link to NASCAR.
Texas-based Freescale Semiconductor has announced that 20 of its employees are on the missing flight (12 from Malaysia, eight from China). Freescale provides processors for the McLaren electronic control units that run the fuel injection systems on all Sprint Cup cars.
“At present, we are solely focused on our employees and their families,” Freescale president/CEO Gregg Lowe said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this tragic event.”
A recent update this morning from NBCNews.com stated that a Vietnamese navy plane spotted an object in the Gulf of Thailand that they suspect may belong to MH370.
The Beijing-bound plane lost contact with flight controllers on Saturday morning after departing two hours earlier from the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur.
