NASCAR star Kyle Busch, currently third in the Sprint Cup standings, was pulled over on a road near his home in Mooresville, North Carolina yesterday for speeding in a bright yellow 2012 Lexus LFA not unlike the one pictured above.
Busch was driving with his wife Samantha in the car at a speed of 128 mph in a 45 mph zone when he was spotted by local police and subsequently pulled over.
He was given a citation for speeding, as well as careless and reckless driving, and has since apologized for his actions, stating that he will never do anything like that again--on public roads at least.
Interestingly, this wasn’t Busch’s first traffic citation.
In 2006 he was issued a summons for reckless driving in Richmond, Virginia for screeching his tires in a fast food parking lot, and in 2008 he was reportedly cited for doing 55 mph in a 35 mph zone in Iredell County, North Carolina.
