MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Denny Hamlin will return to the seat of the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 11 Toyota Camry this weekend at Martinsville Speedway.

Hamilin, who sat out Sunday’s Auto Club 400, because a sinus infection was impacting his vision, has been cleared to return to racing.

Doctors in the infield care center at Auto Club Speedway referred him to the local hospital for further evaluation, where doctors discovered a small piece of metal in Hamlin’s eye. Doctors were able to remove the sliver of metal and Hamlin felt immediate improvement to his condition.

A CT Scan did not find any other complications and thus it is believed that the metal was actually the source of Hamlin’s vision issues.

Hamlin was then evaluated by a doctor in the Charlotte area on Monday and was sent home to rest. He returned to the doctor Wednesday and received approval to return to competition.
