BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Michael Annett is back at the track as a spectator, unable to drive his Richard Petty Motorsports car in the Nationwide Series race because of a fractured and dislocated sternum.
He was injured in a crash during last month's season-opener at Daytona. He spent a night in the hospital before returning home to North Carolina, where doctors discovered the severity of his injury. Emergency surgery followed and Annett is sidelined indefinitely.
Now questions remain as to what caused Annett's injuries as NASCAR, RPM and seat belt manufacturer Schroth investigate the accident.
Reed Sorenson is driving Annett's car until he can return, and doctors believe he could be sidelined eight weeks. But Annett hopes to get back in the car a week earlier than planned based on how well he's felt.
