|Kyle Busch Due In Court On Charges From Joy Ride
|STATESVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- NASCAR points leader Kyle Busch is due in court Tuesday afternoon to face charges stemming from a high-speed joy ride in a luxury car.
Busch was charged May 24 with driving 128 mph in a 45 mph zone in a bright yellow 2012 Lexus. The hand-built LFA sports car is valued at nearly $400,000 and was on loan to Busch from Lexus.
Busch was cited for careless and reckless driving, as well as speeding. His name was called Tuesday in North Carolina District Court in Iredell County during the morning session by assistant district attorney Josh Green.
Busch was not present, and is not expected to be called before judge Thomas Church until after the lunch break.
Busch earned his Sprint Cup series-best fourth victory Sunday at Michigan.
