Matt DiBenedetto cleared to race in Phoenix
After suffering a concussion from a hard hit into the wall while racing in the XFINITY Series race at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday, Matt DiBenedetto was held out of Sunday's AAA Texas 500 and told that he had to pass the concussion protocol before returning to racing.
He sent out a tweet on Tuesday afternoon, stating that he has been cleared to get back in the race car on Sunday at Phoenix International Raceway for the Can-Am 500.
He'll be back behind the wheel of the No. 83 BK Racing Toyota.
I am officially cleared to race this weekend at @PhoenixRaceway! I am completely fine but I appreciate everyone looking out for my safety!
