(AP) Bobby Labonte was released from the hospital Thursday a day after he broke three ribs in a bike riding accident near his North Carolina home.


Labonte suffered no other injuries. He will miss this weekend's NASCAR race in Atlanta.


The 49-year-old Labonte was scheduled to drive the No. 51 Chevrolet for Phoenix Racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway. He'll be replaced in the car by Mike Bliss.


Labonte's consecutive starts streak came to an end earlier this season at 704 races when JTG Daugherty Racing used AJ Allmendinger at Kentucky in June instead of Labonte.


The 2000 NASCAR champion had not missed a start since he began racing full-time in the Cup Series in 1993. He's won 21 Cup races.
