Truex should be able to avoid surgery on wrist

   NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Martin Truex Jr. has been getting a new cast on his broken wrist each week but it appears he will be able to avoid having surgery. 

   “We started to see this week – it looked a little bit better, so that was good news. The doctor was pretty certain we won’t need surgery now, which is a great news after all the bad news I’ve gotten here lately,” Truex said. 

   "So, hopefully, we’ll keep a cast on it obviously until it heals completely and then I’ll probably wear some sort of brace at least in the race car for the remainder of the year.” 

   Truex broke his right wrist in a wreck last month at Bristol, Tenn.
