NASCAR announced Wednesday that Kyle Busch will remain eligible to compete for the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship. The news comes a day after Busch announced that he would return to NASCAR competition and race in Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Busch has been sidelined since he sustained injures in a crash during this season opening NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Daytona International Speedway on February 21. Busch suffered a compound fracture of his lower right leg and broken left foot. He underwent multiple surgeries and intensive physical therapy sessions.

Busch missed the season opening Daytona 500 and a total of 11 Sprint Cup races. His No. 18 JGR Toyota was driven by Matt Crafton at Daytona, then David Ragan for nine events, and 18-year-old Erik Jones drove it Saturday night at Kansas. Busch is also expected to be back in the car for the remainder of the season starting with the Coca-Cola 600 also at Charlotte Motor Speedway the following week. MORE>>>
