NASCAR driver Kyle Busch’s speeding case is expected to be postponed Wednesday and resolved in late August.

Busch’s attorney, Clifton Homesley, is asking for a continuance and the trial will go to district court on Aug. 23. Homesley says Busch has accepted responsibility and looks forward to resolving this in court.

Busch was charged May 24 for speeding and reckless driving at 128 miles per hour in a 45 miles per hour zone in Iredell County in North Carolina.

Busch was driving a 2012 Lexus LFA sports car when his was pulled over during Charlotte race week.

If convicted of speeding and reckless driving, Busch could have his license suspended for 60 days by the N.C. Department of Motor Vehicles. A judge could also find him guilty of a second-class misdemeanor, which under North Carolina law has a maximum penalty of up to 60 days in jail and suspension of a driver’s license for up to 12 months.

    or Walking. Mistakes happen, We all Know money is no object with him.I think a Good Lesson would be Spend a few days behind bars(JAIL) Then possibly 150 REAL Communbity hours where he is there to Talk to KIDS about How WRONG it is and HOW DANGEROUS TO OTHERS.

    Just Because he is a Nascar Driver.
