CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Kyle Busch will return to competition this weekend, less than three months after he suffered serious injuries in a crash at Daytona.


Busch will drive his No. 18 Toyota in Saturday night’s All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He tweeted “I’m back #RowdyReturns” early Tuesday.


He broke his right leg and left foot in a Feb. 21 wreck in the season-opening Xfinity Series race after crashing into a wall.


Busch missed the season-opening Daytona 500 and 11 total Sprint Cup races. His Joe Gibbs Racing entry was driven by Matt Crafton at Daytona, then David Ragan for nine events, and 18-year-old Erik Jones drove it Saturday night at Kansas.


Busch will be back on track in a Cup car for the first time in Friday’s practice sessions.
