Justin Allgaier cleared to race Friday at Kentucky Speedway

Justin Allgaier has been medically cleared to resume all racing activities after a medical evaluation for a non-racing related issue, NASCAR confirmed Friday afternoon.

The driver of the No. 7 JR Motorsports Chevrolet finished 20th on Thursday night at Kentucky after being involved in a hard-hitting last-lap wreck.

Allgaier, Ronnie Bassett Jr. and Timmy Hill all were sent to the infield care center after the incident, as is standard NASCAR procedure. Bassett and Hill were cleared and released while Allgaier was transported to an area hospital for further evaluation.

Allgaier was treated and released from a local hospital earlier Friday morning for non-racing related medical purposes. He underwent further evaluation before being cleared to race.

The NASCAR Xfinity Series completes its doubleheader Friday night in the Bluegrass State (8 p.m. ET, FS1, PRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

UPDATE: Allgaier sent out a video message on Twitter prior to the race, explaining the reasoning behind his trip to the hospital.
