NASCAR Driver Kyle Busch Busted for 128 in a 45—in a Lexus LFA

It is hard to let off the gas when you are behind the wheel of the Lexus LFA supercar-I know this from personal experience.  On Tuesday, NASCAR driver Kyle Busch learned this the hard way, when he was charged with careless and reckless driving for taking the LFA up to 128 mph in a 45 mph zone in North Carolina.  This car is best let loose on a track, speed racer!

Busch must have guzzled some Busch to do something so rash.

The 26-year-old Busch is a self-styled “bad boy” type who has two other traffic citations gracing his record and is currently on probation by NASCAR for a dust-up with competitor Kevin Karvick during the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.

In a statement by Busch (or his PR people),

"I was test driving a new sports car and I got carried away. I went beyond the speed I should have been going on a public road.  Something like this will never happen again."

NASCAR driver Kyle Busch has a need for speed and a disregard for the law

NASCAR does not require a highway driver’s license for its competitors and does not involve itself in their highway driving affairs.  According to spokesman Kerry Tharp,

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

The young driver has won two races in the Sprint Cup Series this year, ranking 3rd in driver points.  He has an additional 9 wins under his belt in the Nationwide and Camping World Series, drives Toyotas for Joe Gibbs Racing and owns his own race team.  It must be a challenge to differentiate between a racetrack and a regular roadway after so many laps…
