[media-credit name=”Barry Albert” align=”alignright” width=”241″][/media-credit]NASCAR star Kyle Busch confirmed Tuesday night that he was issued a speeding ticket, claiming that he “got carried away” while testing a new sports car.  Busch was going 128 mph in a 45 mph zone, according to the Statesville Record-Landmark.

“Today I received a traffic citation in Iredell County. I was test driving a new sports car and I got carried away,” Busch said. “I went  beyond the speed I should have been going on a public road. I apologize to the public, my fans, sponsors, and race teams for my lack of judgment. I take responsibility for my actions and I can assure you that something like this will never happen again. I thank the Iredell County Sheriff’s Department and all law enforcement for the hard work they do every day to protect the public and to enforce the laws in a fair and equitable manner.”

Busch is currently third in Sprint Cup Series points.
