NASCAR driver Bobby Labonte has been released from the hospital a day after he broke three ribs in a bike riding accident near his North Carolina home.

The 49-year old will miss this weekend's Sprint Cup race in Atlanta. He'll be replaced in the car by Mike Bliss.

The Atlanta race is on Sunday. Labonte sits at 31st in the standings after 22 starts this year.

The driver of the #47 car has been out of the top 10 in finishes all season.
