CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Kyle Busch has been released from the hospital following surgery on his left foot after breaking it during a crash at Daytona International Speedway.
Dr. Robert Anderson of OrthoCarolina performed the surgery on Wednesday.
Busch broke his right leg and left foot Saturday in the Xfinity Series race when he crashed into a concrete wall at Daytona. He missed the season-opening Daytona 500 and is out indefinitely. He had surgery on his leg after the crash.
He was transferred Tuesday from Daytona to Charlotte, where he was released Friday.
David Ragan is driving the No. 18 Toyota this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Busch’s sponsor put "Get well, Kyle!" on the back of the car.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
