Car owner Chip Ganassi suffered a broken clavicle when he wrecked riding his bicycle Saturday in the Pittsburgh area, the team confirmed Tuesday.

Ganassi had surgery Sunday and expects to be at Richmond International Raceway for Saturday night’s Sprint Cup race, the team confirmed.

Jamie McMurray, who drives for Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates, will clinch a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup when he starts Saturday night’s race, which is on NBCSN. Teammate Kyle Larson must win to make the Chase.
