Hamlin Suffers Torn ACL, Will Race at Richmond

Joe Gibbs Racing has announced that driver Denny Hamlin suffered a torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) in his right knee while playing basketball Tuesday night. 

Hamlin had a MRI this morning to confirm the diagnosis and has been evaluated by the medical team at OrthoCarolina. He has received the medical clearance necessary to continue racing activities and is expected to race the remainder of the season and through the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship. Hamlin will require surgery to repair the ACL damage following the season. 
Hamlin will address the media on Friday at 2:55 PM in the Media Center at Richmond International Raceway.

    Another distraction. I am wondering when JGR will insert non-participation clauses in their driver contracts? I am also chuckling at when it used to be Kyle who caused the organization to get in an uproar.
