Phoenix:

NASCAR driver Kurt Busch has been ordered to perform 50 hours of community service. This comes as part of a plea agreement over a reckless driving citation he received near Phoenix International Raceway last November. Busch's lawyer Lee Stein said his client admitted to speeding, a misdemeanor, and two civil citations for following too closely and passing in a no-passing zone. He also paid $580 in court fines. The reckless driving charge was dropped in exchange. NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Poston said the sanctioning body would take no action against the 2004 Nextel Cup champion. (AP)
