Kyle Busch has surgery on foot by North Carolina specialist

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Kyle Busch has undergone surgery on his left foot, broken in a hard crash at Daytona International Speedway.

Dr. Robert Anderson of OrthoCarolina performed the surgery Wednesday. Anderson is a noted specialist who has treated NFL players Matt Schaub and Ahmad Bradshaw and retired baseball players Derek Jeter and Chipper Jones.

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 was transferred Tuesday from Daytona to Charlotte, where he’s undergoing further treatment.

Joe Gibbs Racing said the surgery on his foot was a success, and is Busch will remain hospitalized for observation.
