NASCAR driver Kyle Busch issued speeding citation



DENVER - NASCAR driver Kyle Busch was issued a speeding citation on April 29 in Denver on suspicion of traveling 60 mph in a 45 mph zone.

According to the police report, the stop happened in front of Beach’s Grocery. Busch said he thought the speed limit was 55 mph. The officer commented in the police report that Busch had a “disrespectful attitude.”

He was driving a Lexus sedan when he was stopped around 7:45 p.m.

This is not Busch’s first documented driving incident.

In 2006, he was ticketed for reckless driving after he “chirped” his tires while pulling out of a Richmond, Va., gas station and into a fast-food restaurant next door.

Busch was cited for careless and reckless driving and speeding in 2011 when he was stopped in Iredell County for going 128 mph in a 45 mph zone.

Busch released a statement after the 2011 stop, saying he was test driving a new sports car and got carried away.

He continued, "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.”
