Jeff Burton: Minor Wrist Surgery Staff

Update: Richard Childress Racing driver Burton had successful, minor wrist surgery Tuesday afternoon to alleviate symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, Richard Childress Racing PR reports.

Recommendation: Burton has endured two of the leanest seasons of his Sprint Cup Series career in 2011 and 2012. The minor surgery for carpel tunnel syndrome will help alleviate some pain Burton has also endured. Hopefully this procedure will boost Burton's performance on track and lead to a much better campaign next season.
