INDIANAPOLIS — Kurt Busch remains on the sideline for another week with a concussion.

23XI Racing announced, Wednesday, that the driver of the No. 45 Toyota hasn’t been medically cleared to return to action, this weekend, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, due to a concussion he sustained at Pocono Raceway.

Ty Gibbs, who drove in his place, Sunday, at Pocono, will do so, again, at Indianapolis.

Busch, who’s locked into the playoffs with his victory at Kansas Speedway, was granted another medical waiver by NASCAR. So he remains eligible, barring additional winners or falling out of the top 30 in points.

Though that’s unlikely.

He suffered a concussion when he hit the wall in Turn 3 at Pocono, Saturday, during qualifying.
