Ricky Rudd Back Behind The Wheel

Ricky Rudd will be driving again this weekend after missing five weeks with a separated shoulder.

He'll be behind the wheel of the Robert Yates number-88 Ford at Lowe's Motor Speedway.

Rudd separated his shoulder in a wreck at the California Speedway on September 2nd. It was the first time Rudd has missed a race because of injury in 900 races.

He sat out last year, but raced once as an injury substitute for Tony Stewart.

Rudd returned to a full schedule this season.
