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.
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.

He should get nailed for such an obvious disregard for the law... according to whatever the law says is deserved punishment... but I don't see why it would affect his job.

Now... if he had gotten into an accident and damaged property or injured/killed someone... I'd say that it would be such bad PR that Nascar would want to distance itself from that... but just being caught speeding and driving reckless doesn't seem like something you lose or are penalized by your job over.

Especially when your job requires you to speed and drive (w)recklessly. :D

Scott Fowler, sports columnist for the Charlotte Observer, says team owner Joe Gibbs should suspend Busch for at least one race. Bruton Smith, owner of the Charlotte Motor Speedway, says Busch shouldn't be suspended.

I wonder what would have happened it if was one of "us" who was doing 128 in a 45? We'd probably still be in jail.

Depends on how you are with the cop and your personal history.

IF you don't have a criminal record, and are polite with the cop... and are not under the influence... you may very well get the ticket and be allowed to go home... though I'd expect the cop to follow you a while to make sure you don't speed up again.
