The incident happened on Halloween night when the jet, owned by Jimmie Johnson, had its brakes fail while landing.
The plane also had its landing gear collapse when it went nearly 1000 feet off the runway in Key West, an NTSB report said.
A report released by the NTSB classified Hendrick's injuries as "serious."
The plane also suffered structural damage as it left the runway, crossed a 600-foot overrun, hit the far side of a ditch, crossed a dirt road, cleared another ditch and then hit a berm.
Hendrick suffered some broken ribs and a broken clavicle and was first hospitalized in Key West the night of the incident. When he returned to Charlotte on Tuesday, he was admitted to a medical facility in Charlotte for treatment of pain.
He was released Monday and is doign well, Hendrick Motorsports said.
The pilot of the plane hit the brakes twice to try to get them to work. He finally applied the thrust reversers, but they weren't completely successful.
Hendrick and his wife own a home in the Keys.
Here is the full text of the NTSB preliminary report:
On October 31, 2011, at about 1940 eastern daylight time, an Israel Aircraft Industries G150, N480JJ, went off the end of the runway on landing roll out. The nose landing gear collapsed and the airframe sustained structural damage. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and an instrument flight rules (IFR), flight plan was filed. The certificated airline transport rated pilot-in-command (PIC), airline transport rated co-pilot and one passenger reported minor injuries. One passenger sustained serious injuries. The flight departed from Witham Field Airport (SUA), Stuart, Florida at 1900. The flight was conducted under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight.
Examination of the crash site revealed the airplane departed the runway, crossed a 600-foot overrun, impacted the far side of a ditch, crossed a dirt road, cleared another ditch, and came to a stop 820 feet from the departure end of the runway.
The PIC stated the airplane touched down on the runway just past the 1,000 foot marker. He applied brakes and was going to activate the thrust reversers when he realized the brakes were not operating. He took his feet off the brakes and then reapplied brakes with no braking response. The co-pilot (CP) also applied brakes with no response. The PIC activated the thrust reversers and the airplane continued off the end of the runway colliding with a gravel berm.
The airplane was recovered from the runway and will undergo further investigation.
