NASCAR driver Kyle Busch has gotten himself in trouble not only on the race track this season but off it of too.  Busch was ticketed for speeding and reckless driving on Tuesday when he was clocked going 128 mph in a 45 mph zone in Statesville, NC, 30 miles north of Charlotte. 

Busch immediately issued a statement that he was test-driving a 2012 Lexus sports car and claims “he got carried away.”  Busch went on to say “I went beyond the speed I should have been going on a public road. I apologize to the public, my fans, sponsors, and race teams for my lack of judgment.”

Busch is already on probation for a confrontation with Kevin Harvick at the conclusion of the race at Darlington earlier this month but based on what they know a NASCAR spokesman said the incident won’t affect his status as a NASCAR driver.  He will be allowed to drive this weekend in the Coca Cola 600.  Kyle Busch is coming off a second-place finish in last weekend’s All-Star Race and stands third in the Sprint Cup standings.

It’s not the first time Busch has had a  run-in with the law.  In 2006 he was ticketed for improper driving when he pulled out of a gas station and into parking lot of a fast-food restaurant in Richmond, Virginia.
