Roush Fenway Racing co-owner Jack Roush released from Mayo Clinic

Special to the Sporting News NASCAR Wire Service

Roush Fenway Racing co-owner Jack Roush was released from Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., Wednesday after a two-week stay for treatment of facial injuries following a plane crash July 27.

When Roush will return to the racetrack is still to be determined, the team said, but there has been talk among the team that Roush might get to Michigan International Speedway this weekend. The Nationwide and Sprint Cup races are at MIS, which is close to Roush’s home.

The team did not address the extent of Roush’s injuries.

"I’ve talked to him a few times in the last week or so, and he sounds like the same Jack," said Carl Edwards during a break from Nationwide Series practice Thursday at Michigan. "I’m hoping he recovers well."

Does Edwards expect to see Roush this weekend?

"You never know with Jack," he said. "I wouldn’t be surprised if he shows up. We hope he stays home and rests. That’s what he needs."

Roush Fenway Racing fields four teams in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series, as well as four teams in the Nationwide Series.
