  • NASCAR driver clocked doing 128 in a 45mph zone...

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110525/...pphu-container



    STATESVILLE, N.C. – NASCAR driver Kyle Busch was clocked by a North Carolina sheriff's deputy going 128 mph in a 45 mph zone and was cited for careless and reckless driving and speeding, a law enforcement spokesman said Tuesday.

    Iredell County Sheriff's Office Capt. Darren Campbell said a deputy stopped Busch's 2012 yellow Lexus sports car on a road between Troutman and Mooresville, where the 26-year-old driver lives. It's about 30 miles north of Charlotte.

    Campbell said Busch was cited and released upon a written promise to appear in court.

    In a statement issued late Tuesday, Busch acknowledged what happened.

    "I was test-driving a new sports car and I got carried away," Busch said. "I went beyond the speed I should have been going on a public road. I apologize to the public, my fans, sponsors, and race teams for my lack of judgment."

    Busch, who drives for Joe Gibbs Racing, accepted responsibility and said it would never happen again.

    NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp said Busch would be allowed to race this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He's coming off a second-place finish in Saturday night's All-Star race, and goes into the Coca-Cola 600 ranked third in the Sprint Cup Series standings.

    "This is a matter that Kyle will have to handle with the authorities in Iredell County," Tharp said. "Based on what we know right now, this would not impact his status as a NASCAR driver."

    In 2006, Busch pleaded guilty to improper driving and was fined $150 after he was ticketed in suburban Richmond, Va., on a reckless driving charge when he pulled out of a gas station and into a fast-food restaurant. Busch said at the time he "chirped" his tires but didn't exceed 10 mph.

    Under a misdemeanor reckless driving charge he originally faced, Busch could have received up to one year in jail, a $2,500 fine and a driver's license suspension.

    Last month, Busch was placed on probation through June 15 after he and Kevin Harvick confronted each other in the pits after a race at Darlington Raceway.

    Isn't Kyle Busch and Tony Stewart like the nutheads on the track? We don't need NASCAR turning into a league of criminals, we have the NBA & NFL for that.

        Hey NASCAR was founded by criminals who were bootlegging. I want to see that 2012 Lexus sports car he was driving.

            I'm surprised he didnt get taken to jail. Though, once before my army days when I was young and dumb, I was caught doing 113 in a 45. I just got a ticket for unsafe speed. That was a long time ago...

              Not only would he have gone to jail, his car would belong to my department after this.

                  NASCAR is a massive component of this area's economy. I'm more surprised he got the ticket than that he evaded jail. But then again... In my perfect world image, I'd have tiered licensing with the left lanes reserved for proven drivers in approved machinery.

                  I've experienced undeserved leniency for doing something unbelievably stupid on a public road. I'm sure the officer could have articulated sufficient reason to take him in, but I assume Busch admitted guilt, apologized, and was respectful. The police have no obligation to show leniency, but being respectful and courteous can't hurt.

                  What stipulations must be met for your department to seize a vehicle? What usually happens if the vehicle's title is still held by a bank?

                  The IS-F doesn't come in yellow, so it must have been a LFA

                  they sound wonderful


                  I'd rather have him driving 128 beside me than the girl who was terrorizing I-16E in a 'Smart' car today.

                    Yeah, I still would have taken him to jail, but I despise nascar.

                    I was running radar at the city limits at about 1am one night and got excited when I saw this:


                    Turned out to be a trooper in a bit of a hurry, just without his 'blues and twos' on. Kind of embarrassed to light up, jump out of my hole, then immediately shut it all down, haha.

                      I like how they compared the $375,000 LFA to the $85,000 GTR, dump an extra $10k into the GTR and you'd still destroy the LFA.

                      As far as the speeding issue, he is well capable of handleing the car at those speeds but should know better than to do it on the streets.

                        Hey, while he was in the wrong. He was at least a man about it and didn't whine and try to get out of it.

                          I would imagine he's going to be in more trouble for driving an Import than for speeding.

                            I would have agreed at first, but heard on the radio (can't stand nascar so had no clue) that he drives for Toyota. He was test driving the car and had his wife in it at that haha! I'm sure Toyota was going to give him a big discount on the car.


                            As for the GT-R vs LFA. The LFA is a bad car, but yeah give me that Skyline in a heart beat for the price difference.

                              We have a deputy at work who pulled over a local music superstar - won't name names - but apparently, he was driving well over the legal speed limit in a VERY expensive car - when the deputy pulled him over and realized who he was, he was all apologetic and the deputy let him go with a warning with the logic of: what's the point of a ticket?! He probably has 10 times the amount of the highest ticket I could write him sitting in his wallet right now...

                              I kind of feel the same way...he'll never receive the one year in jail or the license suspension; and he makes the $2,500 in about 2 minutes worth of work...and even IF his license gets suspended - he'll just hire someone to drive him around - the guy makes tens of millions of dollars a year...I just hope the media exposure will make him feel like a dumba** so he'll learn his lesson that way...
