STATESVILLE, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina authorities say a sheriff's deputy clocked NASCAR driver Kyle Busch going 128 mph in a 45 mph zone and that he has been cited for careless and reckless driving and speeding.
Busch said in a statement Tuesday that he was driving a new sports car and got carried away. He apologized and said it would never happen again.
Iredell County Sheriff's Office spokesman Capt. Darren Campbell says a deputy stopped Busch's 2012 yellow Lexus sports car on a road between Troutman and Mooresville, where the 26-year-old driver lives. It's about 30 miles north of Charlotte.
Busch drives for Joe Gibbs Racing. Last month, Busch was placed on probation through June 15 after he and Kevin Harvick confronted each other in the pits after a race at Darlington Raceway.
