CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR driver Michael Annett was released from a hospital Friday following surgery to repair a fractured and dislocated sternum.
His Richard Petty Motorsports team says the recovery process could take two months for the Nationwide Series driver.
Annett was injured in a crash in the series opener at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday. He spent one night in a Daytona Beach hospital before returning to North Carolina. His injuries were diagnosed in Charlotte, and he underwent surgery Tuesday.
Annett was injured before the last-lap crash that sent debris into the grandstands that injured more than two dozen fans.
