The unnamed journalist was driving a new BMW M6 convertible when he was caught by the California Highway Patrol doing 136 MPH in a 55 zone. I’m told that the first name on the ticket appears to be Anthony and the last name begins with P. Any suspects? Please let me know.
UPDATE: A reader wonders if it’s former USA Today auto racing writer A.J. (Anthony) Perez. He tweeted the above denial and wrote in an email: “I don’t ever remember driving a German car. I also was in at home in the DC area, so I have an alibi.”
UPDATE II: “The day previous to our drive day, some eight or so of our fellows had been documented as driving above the posted speed limits — one nicked while moving very deeply into triple-digit speeds.” (WindingRoad.com — h/t Melissa Umbarger)
