HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (March 26, 2013) – Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) driver Denny Hamlin was evaluated today by Dr. Jerry Petty of Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates after suffering an L1 Compression Fracture during an accident on the final lap of Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway.
Dr. Petty determined that Hamlin will not require surgery, but will need time to properly heal, which is estimated around six weeks time. Dr. Petty will make the determination when Hamlin will be able to return to racing this season.
No decision has been made on a replacement driver for Hamlin during his absence from the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series
Kyle Busch was able to complete the weekend sweep at Auto Club Speedway this weekend with a thrilling finish in which he managed to avoid an accident coming out of turn four to take the checkered flag in today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Auto Club 400.
Unfortunately that accident involved his teammate Denny Hamlin, who was racing Joey Logano for the win, but was sent spinning down across the track after contact from the 22 car. The No. 11 Camry hit hard into the inside wall of Auto Club Speedway. Hamlin was taken to the infield care center where he complained of back pain. He was taken to a local hospital for further evaluation. He would be officially scored in 25th position for the race.
