CONCORD, N.C. – Kyle Busch apologized repeatedly Thursday for showing a “lack of judgment” in driving 128 mph in a 45 mph zone in a borrowed Lexus.

Busch was cited for careless and reckless driving, and speeding following a Tuesday stop. He was driving a nearly $400,000 bright yellow Lexus.

In his media session at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Busch apologized several times for the joyride and said he would not make the mistake again.

“I’m certainly sorry that it happened,” he said. “All I can do is apologize to the public, my friends, my fans and my sponsors. I’ll look at this experience as a learning experience and move forward.” “There’s probably reason why on the TV commercials that they always show at the bottom, ‘Professional driver, closed course.’ Mine was not that. Again, I apologize sincerely. All I can do is make sure it doesn’t happen again.”

Lexus parent company Toyota sponsors the Joe Gibbs Racing team that Busch drives for, and the 2012 Lexus LFA was loaned to both Busch and Denny Hamlin this week. Hamlin tweeted a picture of the car the day before Busch was ticketed with the post, “If u see me today in ur rear view driving this Please move!!”

The LFA is hand-built in Japan, and only 87 of the 500 scheduled vehicles have been built.

Lohan begins serving sentence at home

LOS ANGELES – Lindsay Lohan returned to a women’s jail before dawn on Thursday and was released before rush hour to begin serving a four-month jail sentence at her home for a probation violation.

The actress left the lockup with an ankle monitor that she must wear for about 35 days, sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said.

The term is longer than the three weeks or less that Lohan would have spent in a solitary confinement unit at the jail, where she served 14 days last summer for another probation violation. Lohan was sentenced to 120 days in jail and 480 hours of community service in April after it was determined she took a necklace without permission from a store.

‘Traitor’ role may still be haunting Tang Wei

HONG KONG – “Lust, Caution” star Tang Wei’s role in a Chinese propaganda blockbuster as the first love of Communist China’s founding father, Mao Zedong, has reportedly been dropped, raising the prospect that the actress is still suffering backlash after playing a traitor in the 2007 World War II-era spy thriller.

While “Lust, Caution” gave Tang international exposure, her role as a student activist who warns a Japan-allied Chinese intelligence official about an assassination attempt allegedly offended Chinese film officials worried about lingering anger over Japanese wartime atrocities.

The film’s director, Ang Lee, who won an Oscar for the gay romance “Brokeback Mountain,” was asked to edit dialogue so as to make the warning from Tang’s character less explicit.
