News reports tell us that NASCAR racer Kyle Busch was taking a car for a test drive got a speeding ticket for driving 128 mph in a 45 mph zone in Mooresville, North Carolina.
Plenty fast, but that's nowhere near the 202 mph top speed he should expect from a factory fresh Lexus LFA sports car.
So now perhaps a new unofficial advertising campaign has begun with LFAs on the road and heavy footed race car drivers behind the wheel. And Busch was first off the line. Charlotte Observer has a PDF of the ticket. Best part:
"Clocked the defendant traveling south on Perth Rd. at Honeysuckle Creek LP. Defendant stated 'It's just a toy.' "
Advice to Mr. Busch: Move to West Texas where you can find Interstate Highways with 80 mph speed limits, a 35 mph head start over where you got the ticket. And buy the darn car before you open it up on the highway.
