NASCAR's Kyle Busch Caught Doing 128 In A 45 - Off The Track

Kyle Busch is one of NASCAR's most successful speed demons, but he apparently took things a little too far Tuesday.

Clocked by Iredell County (N.C.) police at 128 MPH in a 45-MPH zone, Busch was ticketed for careless and reckless driving and speeding. The yellow machine he was driving was not his No. 18 M&Ms-sponsored Toyota Camry but rather a Lexus sports car prototype.

This isn't the first time Busch, one of racing's most volatle but popular personalities, has run afoul of Johnny Law off the track. In April 2006, he was cited for "chirping" his tires while in Richmond, VA, for a NASCAR test session.
