Roush Fenway Racing’s Trevor Bayne has been released from the Mayo Clinic after a week long stay. Bayne was admitted after suffering from nausea, fatigue and vision impairment. The symptoms were originally thought to be related to the bug bite suffered in April but Bayne tweeted last weekend that this was not the case.

“Since his admission, the nausea and fatigue have abated, and the vision impairment continues to be treated with medication, and is showing significant improvement” said Mayo Clinic neurologist Brian Crum, M.D.

“This symptom appears to be the result of an inflammatory condition. Further assessments will be made over the next couple of weeks. His condition is not life threatening or career-ending. We expect he will continue to improve, though the timeframe for his return to racing is unknown at this point. He will continue to be followed closely by his Mayo Clinic team.”

It is clear that Bayne will not be racing at Darlington this weekend. Chris Buescher will be making his second career NASCAR start on Friday, filling in for Bayne as he did at Richmond.
