As Joe Gibbs Racing originally announced back before the Daytona 500, Kyle Busch waited until he was back in North Carolina before having surgery on his broken left foot on Wednesday. The surgery, performed by Dr. Robert Anderson of OrthoCarolina, was considered to be a success.
As of right now, Busch is resting comfortably in a Charlotte-area hospital. The team has not released any additional updates and will not until there is something more substantial to report.
