STATESVILLE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR points leader Kyle Busch has had his driver's license suspended in a case stemming from his high-speed joy ride in a luxury car.
Busch pleaded guilty to speeding and no contest to reckless and careless driving in North Carolina District Court in Iredell County on Tuesday. In addition to losing his license for 45 days, he also was fined $1,000, sentenced to 30 hours of community service and put on one year of unsupervised probation.
Busch, who doesn't need a license to compete in NASCAR, was stopped May 24 while driving 128 mph in a 45 mph zone in a bright yellow 2012 Lexus. The hand-built LFA sports car is valued at nearly $400,000 and was on loan to Busch from Lexus.
