Green Likely To Sub For Elliott

2570Jpg
NASCAR Winston Cup driver Bill Elliott will most likely miss the goracing.com 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway after fracturing his left kneecap in a "freak accident" at his home in Blairsville, Ga.

Busch Series veteran David Green will sub for Elliott during Friday’s practice and qualifying sessions and Elliott will decide his status in the next few days. It is likely that Green will start the race, on the same weekend that he will start his 200th career Busch Series race.

The accident happened Tuesday afternoon when Elliott tripped and landed all of his weight on his left knee while working in his garage. His wife, Cindy, transported him to the emergency center at Union General Hospital in Blairsville. Following the diagnosis at the Blairsville hospital, Elliott flew to Birmingham, Ala. where he had surgery Tuesday evening at HEALTHSOUTH Medical Center to repair the fractured patella.

Elliott is expected to be released on Thursday. RacingOne.com will have more information as soon as it becomes available.
