INDIANAPOLIS -  The Verizon IndyCar Series announced that driver Mikhail Aleshin was released from Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis on Tuesday.

Aleshin, 27, suffered a concussion, chest injuries, fractured ribs and a broken clavicle in a multi-car wreck during practice at Auto Club Speedway on Aug. 29.

The driver of the No. 7 Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda was transferred from Loma Linda University (Calif.) Medical Center to Methodist Hospital on Sept. 9.

"I'm feeling better each day," Aleshin said in the release. "I'm very happy to be back in Indianapolis with my friends and the team. The doctors are taking very good care of me. Everything is going as planned with my recovery, and before you know it I'll be back behind the steering wheel."

After further evaluation at Methodist, including INDYCAR medical consultants Dr. Terry Trammell and Dr. Kevin Scheid, Aleshin “underwent a minor surgical procedure on his right shoulder,” according to the release.

Aleshin remains in Indianapolis during his recovery. He will continue his rehabilitation under the direction of INDYCAR Medical.
