Ex-NASCAR racer to court after NV-AZ-UT chase


ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) - A former NASCAR driver who led police on a high-speed chase through Nevada, Arizona and Utah has been ordered to appear in Utah state court next month.

The (St. George) Spectrum reports a preliminary hearing is scheduled June 13 in 5th District Court for 33-year-old Timothy Tyler Andrew Walker and 30-year-old Raelle Hann McDonald.

The couple from Hermosa Beach, Calif., was arrested in St. George Jan. 30 after a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper started chasing them in a BMW at speeds up to 150 mph.

Both face drug charges after troopers say they found methamphetamine, marijuana and an open bottle of vodka in the car. Walker also is charged with failure to stop for police.

NASCAR suspended Walker in 2007 for violating its substance abuse policy.
