Was hearing about this during the Charlotte race last night. 128 in a 45 lol


So what was Kyle Busch driving when he was pulled over in North Carolina for allegedly doing a socially unacceptable 128 mph in a 45 mph zone?

The NASCAR driver had been loaned a very special supercar by Lexus, a 552-horsepower LFA coupe that began production in December with a very serious price tag of $375,000. Just 22 of them have been delivered so far to U.S. customers, with 500 examples planned worldwide.

Busch says that he showed a lack of judgment in flogging the LFA on a public highway, with his wife on board, no less. But really, you have to admire his restraint. He could have been going much, much faster.
