Michael Annett out of hospital after surgery

NASCAR driver Michael Annett was released from a hospital Friday
following surgery to repair a fractured and dislocated sternum.

His Richard Petty Motorsports team says the recovery process
could take two months for the Nationwide Series driver.

Annett was injured in a crash in the series opener at Daytona
International Speedway on Saturday. He spent one night in a Daytona
Beach hospital before returning to North Carolina. His injuries
were diagnosed in Charlotte, and he underwent surgery Tuesday.

Annett was injured before the last-lap crash that sent debris
into the grandstands that injured more than two dozen fans.
