This NASCAR Driver Got Pulled Over for Speeding on the Way to Race

Dale Earnhardt Jr. may be among the fastest drivers in the world, but he couldn’t shake a Texas cop when Earnhardt got caught speeding Sunday while driving to Texas Motor Speedway.

ESPN is reporting Earnhardt was pulled over on the way to the AAA Texas 500.

His fiancee, Amy Reimann, was in the car and she posted a photo on Twitter of the officer writing out a warning for one of North Carolina’s most popular sports figures. The Sporting News says he was “wheeling it” in a Buick.

Earnhardt tweeted about it, showing a sense of humor. When asked by Twitter follows how fast he was going, Earnhardt responded: “Not fast enough.”
