Wendy Venturini will return to her duties at the Performance Racing Network this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway, almost two months after being struck by a car while running in Novato, California.
Venturini made the announcement in a surprise appearance Tuesday on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio's "Tradin' Paint."
She had been in California to be a pit reporter for PRN's radio broadcast of the Cup race at Sonoma Raceway.
Among the injuries Venturini suffered in the incident were a skull fracture and a concussion.
"I'm looking forward to it," Venturini said of the upcoming race weekend. "It's been a long two months and I'm not 100 percent, but I'm getting closer and closer and this is step back into real life and real world stuff. So I think it will help in my recovery."
