Oh yeah, on and off the NASCAR track....

  1. (Nice role model....)


    Kyle Busch ticketed for reckless driving
    Associated Press

    RICHMOND, Va. -- NASCAR driver Kyle Busch was ticketed for reckless driving in a Richmond suburb Wednesday night.

    The misdemeanor charge carries up to a year in jail, a $2,500 fine and a driver's license suspension, said Sgt. Don Lambert, with Henrico County police. The charge also calls for a mandatory court appearance; Busch will appear in Henrico County General District Court on May 23.

    Lambert said the incident happened at 10 p.m. near Richmond International Airport, a few minutes outside the city.

    Neither speed nor alcohol was a factor, though Lambert would not provide further details.

    "The officer observed his driving behavior consistent with reckless driving," he told The Associated Press late Thursday night.

    The 20-year-old Busch, who drives for the Hendrick Motorsports, grabbed his first series victory on May 14, 2004 at Richmond International Raceway. He went on to four more victories and completed the year with five poles and five wins, becoming the youngest top rookie in series history at age 19.

    Tuesday, Busch again appeared at the Richmond raceway for the Virginia kickoff of "Focus on Driving," Sprint Nextel's attentive driving education program.

    Busch's older brother and NASCAR star, Kurt, had his own legal problems because of a traffic incident last year.

    Kurt Busch was banned from two NASCAR races and authorities ordered him to perform 50 hours of community service after he became belligerent with Phoenix police during a 2005 traffic stop. Police charged him with reckless driving.

    Busch later apologized.

    Henrico County authorities said the younger Busch, who lives in Mooresville, N.C., was cooperative.
     
  2. If you seek a role model, then you should look to The Petty's. Their charity work with sick and disabled children remains legendary. With respect to Kyle Busch's "behavior consistant with reckless driving," I'll wait for the facts to come out before developing an opinion toward any innocence or guilt. However, doesn't it appear a bit incongruent that a 20 year old can handle a stock care driving at speeds in excess of 180 mph, but cannot properly maneuver an automobile on a city street while driving under the speed limit. Maybe Kyle performed a few 'donuts' on his way to the airport. I look forward to hearing the facts at a later date. The AP Article contained precious few.

  4. Sure, NASCAR is not a family disease...

    LOL!

    From the article:

    Busch's older brother and NASCAR star, Kurt, had his own legal problems because of a traffic incident last year.

    Kurt Busch was banned from two NASCAR races and authorities ordered him to perform 50 hours of community service after he became belligerent with Phoenix police during a 2005 traffic stop. Police charged him with reckless driving.

    Busch later apologized.

    You and Kurt share the same 'disease' state. Kurt ran into problems for running off at the mouth. Younger brother Kyle has often exhibited the same symptoms, but according to the article, his symptoms remain in remission.

    An act you consistently avoid. I do hope you begin to feel better soon.

  6. As additional information becomes available, we begin to understand. Donuts in a parking lot? A burnout at a red light? Such shocking criminal behavior. Speaking of Criminal Behavior, The NBA all-time arrest leader honor falls to, none other than, Isaiah Rider (21 arrests during his career) - a member of the Portland Jailblazers. Kyle Busch certainly has a long way to go before he can 'race for the lead' in this category.

    So lets analyze the criminal activity of professional athletes. Shall we start with your beloved NBA?

    The Jail Blazers, of course, are one of the greatest collections of professional sports criminals of all time. In recent years the team has been home to a rapist (Ruben Patterson), a guns-and-pants thief (Zach Randolph), a black-market dog-fighter (Qyntel Woods), and a panderer to minor girls (Marcus Brown).

    Since you rarely wish to engage in a debate on the facts, allow me to save you some time:

    "Straw Man, Straw Man, non sequitur, ad hominem, ad hominem, ad hominem."

    I hope you feel better soon.

  7. Awww, come on Spyder, give ZZZ a break. Didn't he tell you that these NBA role models come from oppressed families? How dare you compare their contributions to society to the evil white southern race car drivers that do donuts in parking lots. Get a grip. Don't mention the crimes of NBA players again... don't you know that makes you a racist? Don't believe me??? Ask the copy/paste king.
     
  8. Hey ZZZ, how many more replies am I allowed to have before your little pet starts deleting posts again? If you could give me a ballpark figure, I'd appreciate it.
    Oh by the way, no Nextel Neckcar race this weekend. Happy Easter!
     
  9. I don't run off at the mouth with cops...

    Just NECKCAR fans....


    "Straw Man, Straw Man, non sequitur, ad hominem, ad hominem, ad hominem."

    Exactly, I have come to expect no less than the defense by attack by logical fallacy.

    Were you not so defensive, a simple:

    "Ya, we got some jerks in NASCAR" would have been a more normal response.

    I do not expect such normalcy from fanatics though....

     
  10. Your litany of inane posts on this web site alone proves otherwise. The fallacy you claim others offer up for debate remains truly your own.

    As predicted, ZZZzzzzzzz's modus operandi continues ....

    ""Straw Man, Straw Man, non sequitur, ad hominem, ad hominem, ad hominem."
