One of the biggest issues facing the American workforce today is the number of people who have to take work home with them. Apparently the problem has gotten so bad that it’s now even affecting race car drivers.

While he was driving to Texas Motor Speedway to watch Sunday’s AAA Texas 500 Sprint Cup race, popular NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. was pulled over for speeding in his Buick.

Earnhardt, who is taking a break from racing after displaying concussion-like symptoms, got off with a warning even though he was “wheeling it,” according to a tweet by his fiancée Amy Reimann.

It doesn’t seem Earnhardt will be back this year, but his fans should take solace in the fact that he’s still got a need for speed, as evidenced by his response when asked how fast he was going:
