NASCAR Driver Kyle Busch Caught Speeding At 128mph – Loses License
I don't think he could've gotten this one "fixed." NASCAR driver Kyle Busch was in court recently on charges stemming from his high speed escapades. Busch was recently pulled over for driving 128 mph in a 45 mph zone. The incident happened near a daycare, church and subdivision. Busch was driving a hand-built LFA sports car, which he was using on loan from Lexus.
Busch apologized for the incident. “I’m certainly sorry that it happened,” he said. “It wasn’t a toy, it’s a high-performance vehicle. It should be driven with caution. Obviously, I didn’t have caution and I had a lack of judgment. There’s probably reason why on the TV commercials that they always show at the bottom, ‘Professional driver, closed course.’ Mine was not that. Again, I apologize sincerely. All I can do is make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
Busch had his license suspended for 45 days, plus he'll have to complete 30 hours of community service and pay a $1000 fine. Here's the weird thing. He doesn't need a driver's license to drive in a NASCAR race. Wow.
