NASCAR Nationwide series driver Michael Annett’s injuries suffered in a crash during last week’s race at last Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide race at Daytona International Speedway will require surgery.
Annett was swept up in a multi-car crash on lap 116 of the Drive4COPD 300. After the accident, Annett was taken to Halifax Medical Center complaining of pains in his chest and sternum. He was given a CT scan and kept overnight.
After further evaluation by two different doctors in North Carolina this week, it was determined that Annett had suffered a dislocation of his sternum and a fracture. He will immediately undergo surgery for his injuries in Charlotte. MORE>>>
