Kyle Busch Loses License In Speeding Case
Kyle Busch plead guilty to speeding and no contest to reckless and careless driving in North Carolina District Court in Iredell County. Busch lost his license for 45 days, was fined $1,000, sentenced to 30 hours of community service, and put on one year of probation, according to FoxSports.com.
Busch addressed the court before the sentencing and apologized for his behavior.
An attorney for Busch said that he was not treated like any other citizen, citing a case in which a 21-year-old who was cited doing 128 mph (the same speed as Busch) received a $300 fine and no loss of license.
Busch will perform his community service with the teen safe-driving program, Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe (BRAKES), a program created by drag racer Doug Herbert after his sons were killed in a car accident where speed was a contributing factor. Busch agreed to sponsor 300 students, and will participate in some of the sessions.
