Ryan Truex cleared to race at Bristol

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) Ryan Truex is back behind the wheel of his Toyota for BK Racing at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The driver missed last weekend's race at Michigan after he sustained a concussion during a single-car crash during practice. The 22-year-old rookie was taken to the hospital and underwent CT scans of his head, neck, chest and abdomen, which were all negative.

J.J. Yeley filled in and finished 30th.

Truex was cleared to race on Thursday. He is 37th in the points standings heading into Saturday night's race.
