DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Justin Wilson is back in a race car for the first time since breaking his back in an IndyCar accident in August.
Wilson is driving for Michael Shank Racing in the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
The Englishman suffered a compression fracture of the fifth vertebra when his car went off course and landed hard at Mid-Ohio. He spent more than two months in a back brace and has been eager to race again.
He's teamed with NASCAR driver AJ Allmendinger and Grand-Am regulars Ozz Negri and John Pew in the twice-round-the-clock race that begins Saturday.
Wilson this week also announced he'll drive for Dale Coyne Racing in the upcoming IndyCar season. He'll test the new Dallara DW12 next week at Sebring.
