NASCAR driver Kyle Busch may have come in second-place finish in Saturday night’s All-Star race but he sure dusted the competition this week in Statesville, North Carolina. The problem is that the track was a residential street with a 45 mph limit and he was going 128 mph. He probably wishes that he waited to drag race in Washington, D.C., where police are under fire for fixing tickets for celebrities.
Busch, 26, was cited for careless and reckless driving and speeding in his 2012 yellow Lexus sports car. Busch later said that he was “test-driving a new sports car and I got carried away.” Test-driving a Lexus? His wife, Samantha, was a passenger and Busch later reportedly told the officer “it is just a toy.”
He will still be allowed to race this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
