Kyle Busch plead guilty to a May 24th speeding violation and and had his driver's license suspended for 45 days.

Busch was also fined $1,000 at Tuesday's hearing for the citation he received for driving 128 mph in a 45 mph speed zone outside of Mooresville, North Carolina.

Judge H. Thomas Church gave Busch a 30-day suspended jail sentence with a year of unsupervised probation. 

Busch was also sentenced to do 30 hours of community service with the B.R.A.K.E.S. teen safe-driving program. 

The Joe Gibbs Racing driver could have faced a maximum punishment of up to 60 days in jail and a suspension of a driver’s license for up to 12 months for the second-class misdemeanor had he been convicted of speeding and reckless driving.
