Labonte at NHMS

B obby Labonte is set to return to his Sprint Cup ride this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway after breaking three ribs while bike riding last month.

Labonte was hurt while cycling near his North Carolina home. The 49-year-old driver is still sore but comfortable enough to race.

He’ll be in the No. 47 Camry for JTG Daugherty Racing. The 2000 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion’s best finish of the season is 15th in the season opener at Daytona.
