ST. GEORGE, Utah — A former NASCAR driver accused of leading police on a 150-mph chase through parts of Nevada, Arizona and Utah last year didn’t take a plea deal Tuesday as expected.
The Spectrum of St. George reports attorneys for 35-year-old Timothy Tyler Andrew Walker once again have asked for more time to work on a resolution to the case.
Utah Highway Patrol troopers arrested Walker in January 2013 near St. George to end a chase that began in Nevada and crossed into Arizona before reaching Utah. They reported finding methamphetamine, marijuana and vodka in the car.
Walker pleaded not guilty to the DUI and drug charges filed in Utah.
Walker competed in 28 NASCAR races before the association suspended him in 2007 for violating its drug policy.
