CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Eric McClure will miss Friday night's Nationwide Series race at Darlington Raceway because of injuries suffered in a crash at Talladega.

Team McClure Inc. said Wednesday that Jeff Green will replace McClure in the No. 14 Toyota.

McClure was injured late in Saturday's race at Talladega when his car hit headfirst into the wall. He spent two nights in an Alabama hospital with a concussion and internal bruising, and was sent home Monday.

Green has 18 career Nationwide Series starts at Darlington, with one win and nine top-10 finishes.
