One would think that when your day job consists of driving around banked ovals doing 200 mph that maybe, just maybe, you’d see fit to back it down a little on the street. Apparently NASCAR superstar Kyle Busch doesn’t think so however as he was recently clocked doing 128 mph in a 45 mph zone in a loaner Lexus LF-A just south of Troutman, NC. Clocked by Chris Stone, an Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Sgt., Stone stated that,
“I didn’t even know what kind of car it was,” Stone said. “I hit my radar button and it read 128.”
Believe me when I tell you that in a car like the LF-A 128 mph can come up within the blink of an eye, however 128 mph in a 45 – that’s a bit much. Even though Busch stated, “I take responsibility for my actions and I can assure you that something like this will never happen again,” it doesn’t change the fact that he may still be in some very deep doo-doo. I mean hell, he was after all doing almost 3 times the posted speed limit. Busch was cited for excessive speed, careless and reckless driving.
