DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Michael Annett admits he drank too much and got behind the wheel. Now he's apologizing for his ``horrible'' judgment and hopes to prove he can turn his life around.
Speaking to reporters at Daytona International Speedway, Annett says he is ``definitely owning up'' to his mistake.
Annett was arrested last Sunday and charged with driving while impaired following a two-car accident in Mooresville, N.C. Police say Annett rear-ended another car at a red light and had a blood-alcohol level of 0.32 percent. That's four times the legal limit in North Carolina.
NASCAR placed him on probation but has not suspended him. Annett is entering his first season for Rusty Wallace Racing.
