Kyle Busch underwent surgery on his left foot on Thursday morning and is expected to make a full recovery in time for the start of the 2015 NASCAR season in February. The scheduled procedure to relieve inflammation was performed by Dr. Robert Anderson of OrthoCarolina, according to a team release from Joe Gibbs Racing.

Busch is coming off a 2014 season when he finished 10th in the final NASCAR Sprint Cup Series standings. In 36 Cup starts, he posted one win (Fontana), nine top-five finishes, 15 top-10s and three Coors Light Pole Awards.

JGR shuffled its crew chief lineup for 2015, pairing Busch up with Adam Stevens, who is making the move up from the Nationwide Series. Dave Rogers, who was Busch's previous crew chief, will work as Denny Hamlin's crew chief in 2015.
