CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick has been released from the hospital, a week after he was injured when his private plane ran off the runway during a landing.

Hendrick was released Monday afternoon.

An evaluation in Charlotte last Tuesday showed Hendrick had four broken ribs and a broken shoulder. He was admitted to the hospital to better manage his pain.

Hendrick, his wife and two pilots were on the Gulfstream G150 that had brake issues upon landing Monday night at Key West International Airport. The plane was co-owned by Jimmie Johnson and normally shuttled the five-time defending NASCAR champion and his family to and from races.

Linda Hendrick sustained minor cuts and bruises. The two pilots were not injured.
