Ok I know we all have done it ...... maybe not to his extent. There is spots where we have straight aways in the boon docks that he could have done this. He probably could get on an track by just saying I would to try out my new car and do whatever speed he wanted to do.

Is this wrong and needs to have a his pee pee slapped or just swept under the carpet like other drivers have had done like crashing cars while intoxicated and disappearing only to show up the next day all cleaned up with lawyer saying oops I did not know?

I know we all have our moments and yes no one got hurt ...... this time. Law of averages someone will get hurt or even killed by a stupid prank.

Wrong?

Wrong but ok  ?

Ok?

NASCAR will have to do something to show it is sooooo serious about having its drivers be good citizens. I mean we've all broken the speed limit, but 83 mph over? That's a bit much.

They'll give him a fine that would be huge to us but pocket change to him, put him on probation, warn him that any further incidents will be dealt with most severely. (Think Colonel Klink on Hogan's Heroes)

No matter how you look at it, it is wrong to drive at that speed on a public road. I doubt much will come of it though. We seem to have two sets of laws and rules, one for us and another for people in the public spotlight. Not right but that's the way it seems to be.

The rural roads up there are fun to drive ,but as you have stated it was stupid. I will bet NASCAR does nothing! Any takers?

This is what happens when you give the keys of a Lexus LFA, Top Speed 202 mph, to someone who can Drive It. .....

NASCAR put AJ Allmendinger on probation until the end of the year, for his DUI back in the end of October in 2009 ..... so that was like 3 races till the End of the Season ... slap on the hand ...

NASCAR won't do anything. Kurt Busch was caught speeding/wreckless driving at Phoenix a few years ago, and it was owner Jack Roush that made him sit out the final 2 races that season, Busch was leaving the #97 car at the end of the season anyway. But NASCAR did nothing. So I figure it will be the same here.

May 25, 2011  09:40 AM ET

yeah, he's matured. Not

May 25, 2011  09:57 AM ET

He could probably drive my 64 Corvair safely at that speed, doesnt mean all the other people on the same road(s) are as skilled.

and no, the corvair would not do over 100

It's wrong on many levels. First, he endangered others. Being a race car driver can he handle it? Sure, if nothing goes wrong. He's lost control of his race car, he could loose control of the Lexus too. Someone could pull out in front of him not knowing how fast he was going.

What kind of message does that send to the young NASCAR fans?

Just stupid! I think this seals Bonehead of the Year for him!

All I have to say is MORON.

Sorry and hello to everyone.

Rowdy should have his license suspended for 6 months. Now, will NASCAR let you drive on the track with a suspended license?

This made me LOL for real!! Awesome observation regardless of how stupid he was being.

It's one thing to be a race car driver on a track. Everyone on the track WITH you has also assumed the same risks BUT, to do something like this on a public roadway?!?! He could have killed someone or several someones.....

*smh*

In other BONEHEAD news: A crew member for the #31 has been suspended for failing NASCAR's Substance Abuse Policy. RCR followed this up by firing the crew member in accordance with their own Zero Tolerance policy.
