Ryan Truex, driver of the No. 83 Toyota, has been medically cleared to return to racing after missing last weekend's race due to a concussion.
Truex was involved in a single-car crash during last Saturday's opening practice at Michigan International Speedway when he hit the Turn 2 wall. JJ Yeley substituted for Truex and finished 30th in last Sunday's race.
Truex followed NASCAR's guidelines to return to racing and has been cleared to race in the IRWIN Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway.
"Happy to be back to it this weekend," Truex tweeted. "Concussions are definitely nothing to mess with, thanks to everyone @NASCAR for helping me thru it."
