    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.
