LOUDON, N.H. (AP) - The crew chief for Kurt Busch has made it to New Hampshire for this weekend’s race days after he had an emergency appendectomy.

Tony Gibson had surgery on Tuesday and posted on his Facebook page “Who needs an appendix anyway????” He tweeted Friday morning that Busch sent his plane to Concord, North Carolina, to pick up Gibson. Gibson thanked Busch for the ride and said an extra day to heal helped.

Busch and Gibson are in the hunt to win a championship for Stewart-Haas Racing. Busch has two wins this season and finished third last week at Chicagoland in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship opener. Busch won the championship in 2004.

Gibson watched Friday’s practice from pit road instead of his usual spot atop the transporter.
