Indy 500 driver gets speeding ticket before race
Race driver Tomas Scheckter's need for speed apparently goes beyond his 20th position start in Sunday's Indianapolis 500.
Scheckter says on his Twitter account that officers told him he was going ``over 100.''
Scheckter could have been arrested on a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving but was instead given a ticket for driving at an unreasonable speed. The ticket carries a fine of $175 to $500.
Indianapolis police say officers have discretion and that Scheckter was not treated differently than other speeders.
