Several drivers of high-end cars who spent the night in Omaha as a part of an auto rally ended up with speeding tickets in western Nebraska.
The Nebraska State Patrol confirms to Channel 6 News that six speeding tickets were written to Bullrun Rally riders in Keith County at 11:30 Tuesday morning.
State Patrol planes timed the drivers at speeds between 91-to-106mph on Interstate 80. Keith County Sheriff's Deputies assisted on the ground.
Names of the drivers were not yet available. They were given tickets and continued with the race -- next overnight stop is Boulder, Colorado.
On Monday night, Omaha police stopped one of drivers in his $200,000+ Maserati for squealing tires in the Old Market. He was given a verbal warning.
He told the crowd he had received two speeding tickets in two states the previous two days of the race -- one was for 129mph -- the other 122mph.
The Bullrun Rally is an 8-day race from New York City to Las Vegas. Many of the riders are followed by cameras documenting the trip for the Speed Channel.
