Nascar driver caught 128mph in 45mph

http://sports.yahoo.com/nascar/blog/...=nascar-wp1502

Quote:
There's a time for throttling up, and a time for throttling down.

Just days after winning the North Carolina Education Lottery 200, where he posted an average speed of 101.6 mph, Kyle Busch has been ticketed for exceeding that speed on a public North Carolina road.

Busch was cited for careless and reckless driving; deputies observed and clocked him running at 128 mph in a 45-mph zone on Tuesday afternoon.

Busch now joins a list of famous NASCAR drivers who have had a bit of trouble behind the wheel while off the track. Jimmie Johnson once injured himself after sliding off the roof of a moving golf cart. And Richard Petty famously bumped a driver out of the way for going too slowly on Interstate 85 in North Carolina.

Busch was driving on Perth Road between Troutman and Mooresville, N.C. The road, which runs parallel to Interstate 77, is rural, closely lined with trees and has few residences in the area. Busch was cited near the intersection of Perth and Judas roads, which is directly in the center of the map below:

It's somewhat surprising that more NASCAR drivers don't get caught by the police ... or, at least, their speeding incidents don't result in tickets. After all, when your job involves driving nearly 200 mph, staying at posted speed limits must feel like crawling. Not that there's any excuse for tripling the speed limit, of course.

Busch has not yet made a public statement, but one is likely forthcoming.

I can understand. I mean I'm no race driver but I hate going the speed limit sometimes and cannot drive behind anyone. I need to be in the lead, makes me feel safer and I don't have to deal with idiot drivers. But I don't think it was safe doing what he did. And only speed when it is safe and the driving conditions permit!

Here's what really happened.

Kyle Busch was racing in his Camaro against an M3. M3 got away and Kyle got pulled over.

Driving 200 mph with 45 cars inches from your bumper while picking the PERFECT moment to pass someone without taking out 20 cars is so easy a caveman can do it

I agree with this. Even though NASCAR is boring in my opinion, it doesn't mean it is easy to be a NASCAR driver.

And there's no air conditioning in their cars. Sometimes they lose an average of 10-15 pounds from sweating per race.

+1000000. I hate it when people say that. It's more than just driving around in circles. With that logic, football is just a bunch of guys hitting each other and running with a ball. Anyone can do that

They usually have a device that pumps cool air into their helmets. But yes, drivers lose a couple pounds after a long race.

If anything, you'd think they'd get their "need for speed" out of their system on the racetrack. Though I guess sometimes you wanna go fast and turn RIGHT for a change

Shame on him, he should know better. And I'm sure he can afford all the track days he wants.
