Just saw this on the 6PM news. You have got to be kidding me, Shrub!

Busted for speeding... 128mph in a 45 mph zone on a local 2 lane road here in Mooresville.

NASCAR driver Kyle Busch cited for 128 in 45 mph zone | WCNC.com Charlotte

The icing on the cake is that he wasn't arrested because his 'paperwork was in order'. I can only imagine if I was pulled over doing almost 3 times the speed limit. I'm sure they'd let me go (no arrest) if my paperwork was in order too!

Maybe he was still trying to catch Carl.

Your making it too easy.

Translation: They didn't actually clock him

True... but there were no reports of him chasing a Ford driver!

Here's another article with more detail; this one from from the local paper:

I have to admit that's a pretty cool looking Lexus he was driving.

That's quite an accomplishment by those Deputies. JGR might want to think about giving them some seat time......Logano and Hamlin sure aren't doing much with theirs'.

OK I get it now, so we don't like Fords.
That's OK when I was a kid I would argue about car brands too but I outgrew it.

He was in a LFA, same car that killed a Chief Toyota test driver in Germany. So if anything, this shows Kyle can handle any type of car, although maybe should have done it on a closed course..........just saying. Still a fan though!! He can make it tough on his fanbase from time to time. Bet it got up to that speed pretty damn quick.

That is pretty much a given with many race drivers. Of course many get by with it because of who they are too.Some of the stpories about race drivers on the roadway are pretty common if you can find them thru the apst. Some even related them on theirselfs. Of course they are much better at it than some of the think I'm a good fast driver around you everyday.
