Kyle Busch, driver of Joe Gibbs Racing's No. 18 Toyota in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, underwent successful surgery on his left foot Wednesday afternoon at a Charlotte-area hospital, the team confirmed.
Busch suffered a compound fracture in his lower right leg and a mid-foot fracture of his left foot in an accident in Saturday Xfinity Series season opener at Daytona International Speedway. Busch's No. 54 Toyota slammed nose-first into an area of retaining wall not protected by energy-absorbing SAFER barriers.
Busch's surgery was performed by Dr. Robert Anderson of OrthoCarolina. Busch remains hospitalized for observation.
