CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR driver Jeff Burton had surgery on his wrist to alleviate symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Richard Childress Racing said in a statement the procedure was done Tuesday on an outpatient basis.
Burton said in the statement he experienced re-occurring symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome and made the decision with his doctor to have the procedure as soon as the season ended.

Burton will be ready to test his car next month and will not miss any time.
