Another driver racing for a Sprint Cup Championship has taken a hit, literally.  Martin Truex, Jr. suffered a broken wrist, as well as a sprain, in Saturday night's accident at Bristol Motor Speedway. 

According to Michael Waltrip Racing, Truex was fitted with a special cast, which he will wear indefinitely.  The cast will allow him to better grip the steering wheel. 

Truex is 14th in points and holds the first of two wildcard entries as he seeks his second consecutive berth in NASCAR's Chase the for Sprint Cup.
