Busch Fined, Loses License For 45 Days
Kyle Busch is $1,000 poorer today and will forfeit his North Carolina driver's license for 45 days after pleading guilty to speeding and no contest to reckless and careless driving in North Carolina District Court in Iredell County today. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series points leader was also sentenced to 30 hours of community service and given one year of unsupervised probation.
Busch was clocked at 128 mph in a 45 mph zone May 24m driving a borrowed, 2012 Lexus sports car valued at nearly $400,000. The sanctions will not impact his ability to race in NASCAR.
