The car he was driving was a bright yellow Lexus LFA supercar similar to the one pictured, which he had borrowed for a test drive.
This week Busch plead guilty to speeding charges and no contest to additional charges of careless and reckless driving.
His sentence is 30 days of community service, as well as one year of unsupervised probation. He was also fined $1,000 and had his driver’s license suspended for 45 days, prompting some to question whether he should still be allowed to race in NASCAR.
After the hearing, Busch stated that he was sorry for his actions and lack of judgment.
Many are still angry because the road Busch was driving on, with his wife Samantha in the car, is a narrow, two lane stretch of curving road, and is littered with driveways.
