Kyle Busch undergoes successful surgery on left foot

   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.
