   POCONO, Pa.
   Jack Roush is doing fine, though still hospitalized at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and facing more surgery for facial injuries from Tuesday's plane crash.
   That's the word from shop manager Robbie Reiser, now the man in command of Roush's NASCAR racing operations trackside until the boss returns.
   Reiser, who spoke to Roush Sunday morning, says "they've moved him from intensive care to a regular room.
   "I just talked with him 10 minutes ago. He sounds like the same ol' Jack.
    "And he's more worried about how we're doing here, while everybody here is worried about him and how he's doing.
   "They (Mayo doctors) are looking to see what they plan to do with him in the future. They did some scanning work on him Saturday, not surgery. They were doing some testing work and looking at him.
   "There will be more surgery down the road. And there's no timetable on when he'll be returning. They're going to be doing more things this week, and we'll probably have more answers as the week goes by."
    Roush's jet bounced hard on the runway as he was landing at a Wisconsin air show Tuesday. Roush walked away from the plane, though with a bloody face.
