BROOKLYN, Mich. -- J.J. Yeley will drive the No. 83 car in Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup race after Ryan Truex crashed during practice Saturday and was taken to the hospital with a concussion.

Truex walked to the ambulance following the crash. He hit the wall head-on while exiting a turn, and the front of his car was severely damaged.

The 22-year-old Truex was examined at the track's infield care center and transported to the hospital, where he underwent CT scans of his head, neck, chest and abdomen, which were all negative.

Truex is 37th in the points standings.
