Joe Gibbs Racing driver Kyle Busch will be returning to NASCAR competition this weekend. The driver made the announcement Tuesday via Twitter saying “I’m back #RowdyReturns” and posting a short video. Busch is eligible and will 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.
In the accident Busch’s Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota shot across a paved area entering turn 1 then a grassy area before rocketing into an inside wall head first. Busch could be seen trying to climb from the car as rescue crews got to him. After a few moments he finished climbing from the car with assistance from rescue workers. He then slowly went down prone onto the grass. He remained there for nearly 10 minutes as rescue workers stabilized him on a stretcher. MORE>>>
