Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Aric Almirola is expect to miss 8-12 weeks after suffering a compression fracture in a vertebrae in his back during a three-car crash last Saturday night at Kansas Speedway.
Richard Petty Motorsports announced that Regan Smith will fill in a driver of the no. 43 Smithfield Ford Fusion for this weekend's Monster Energy All Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, and will work with their partners on deciding on additional substitute drivers for future events.
