$400K for this ugly car? I'm very disappointed with Lexus designers.(Well, okay, I'd take it.) KB trying to be corporate, but still rowdy.

Okay, if a NASCAR driver is going to get busted for speeding, why the hell is anyone surprised it was Kyle Busch. I've seen the car, I would have wrung it out a little myself.

Just goes to show what a tool this "guy" really is. Who the hell does this with you're family in the car not to mention threatening the safety of innocent people? I really hope Nascar investigates this to it's full extent. What a loser. Not to mention he looks like a friggin' weasel.

Lexuses are hightly overpriced. I look at alot of those luxery cars and say "I'd never pay high dollars for a car like that."

I hope he gets charged like a regular person. Celebrities get off with way too much.

Not possible anymore. Too much money and sponsor control in play.

Nascar has alaready issued a statement that it had no bearing on him racing in NASCAR. You seem to be a jealous Stewart fan.

I am not jealous. Kurt Bush's ego has always been a huge problem in and out of Nascar.

You're pissing on the wrong Busch (although they both have big egos).

I am a long time Tony Stewart fan and I have to say that at the present time, in my opinion, Kyle Busch is the most talented driver driving in Nascar today.

This is major bullshit. I got locked up for going 90 in a 45. 128 in a 45 and not locked up is ridiculous.

It looks like Kyle Busch got nailed before Denny Hamlin had the chance to. From the sound of his tweet Hamlin had plans to do some driving in this car too. See his tweet here: http://www.nascardirt.com/2011/06/busch-naile...
