DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Kyle Busch was hospitalized following a scary crash late in the Xfinity Series race on Saturday night at Daytona International Speedway.

Busch's car shot straight through the grass and slammed into an interior wall. He could not get out of the car and pointed to his right leg. He was on the ground for several minutes.

Busch was strapped to a stretcher with his right leg immobilized. His car hit a portion of the wall that did not appear to be covered in the protective SAFER barrier.

If Busch is seriously injured, he could sit out the Daytona 500 on Sunday. The race could go on without either Busch brother in the race following the suspension of older brother Kurt Busch.
