Kyle Busch was issued a speeding citation on April 29, according to a report by Charlotte, N.C., TV station WSOC.
The station posted on its website a copy of the citation, which stated that Busch was going 60 mph in a 45-mph zone on N.C. Highway 73 in Denver, N.C., at 7:45 p.m. He was pulled over by a N.C. State Highway Patrol officer.
The citation stated that Busch said he thought the speed limit was 55 mph. The citation also described Busch as having a “disrespectful attitude.’’
Busch faces fine of $30 with court costs of $188. He has court date for July 18.
Requests for comment were sent to Joe Gibbs Racing and Kyle Busch’s representative.
This isn’t the first time he’s been caught speeding.
Busch was ticketed for going 128 mph in a 45-mph zone in May 2011 when he was test driving a $375,000 yellow Lexus sports car.
Busch apologized for that incident, admitting to what he called a “lack of judgment.’’ Busch later pleaded no contest to reckless driving and had his driver’s license suspended for 45 days and also was sentenced to one year unsupervised probation, fined $1,000 and ordered to do 30 hours of community service.
