Arie Luyendyk Jr. was released from the hospital on Sunday following surgery to clean up a staph infection inside his left knee. The doctors worked on removing an infected bursa sac along with the infected portion inside the knee joint. Apparently the infection was created due to continual bruising, due to the high g-forces inside the cockpit. At this time, the medical staff has not announced whether or not Arie will be cleared to race at the Kentucky Speedway on August 9th. Luyendyk Jr. will follow up next Tuesday at the Indiana Orthopedic Hospital, hopefully the surgery will have cleaned everything up as a staph infection can be very dangerous.
