Kyle Busch charged with speeding, 128 in 45 zone

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - We all know he can drive fast, but NASCAR's Kyle Busch was not on a race track when police in North Carolina caught him going 128 miles per hour.

Busch says he was driving a new sports car Tuesday afternoon when he got carried away, in a 45 mile per hour zone.

Now he's charged with careless and reckless driving, and speeding.

He was convicted of reckless driving in Henrico back in 2006 for screeching his tires in a fast food restaurant parking lot.
