Even a racing driver isn't going beat the concerted efforts of the police. That was former NASCAR driver Tyler Walker's lesson when he was arrested on January 30, 2013, after a high-speed chase over three states. The dash cam video from several officers involved has made it online thanks to a Freedom of Information Act Request to the Utah Highway Patrol, according to Autoweek.

The chase finally stopped when Walker attempted to leave the highway by going the wrong way on an entrance ramp. He attempted to flee on foot but was tackled by police. His charges included evading arrest, driving under the influence, open container, liquor license violation and possession of amphetamines, marijuana and narcotic equipment. He pleaded not guilty and is still awaiting his trial, according to Autoweek.

Walker raced in several NASCAR Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series races from 2003 to 2007, but in May 2007 he was suspended for violating the sport's substance abuse policy. He also raced extensively in the World of Outlaws dirt track series. The video edits the hour-and-a-half-long chase down to 11 minutes and switches among officers several times. Scroll down to watch it, but warning: There's some explicit language.

      A chase of a NASCAR driver? Just lure him to the stretch of the road where he'd need to accelerate or slow down, or, if you are cruel enough, a place with a single right turn, and the chase will be over in seconds.

          Some of the best open wheel, road course drivers have tried to play in nascar, none of them really sucessful This is not a knock at those drivers but simply nascar is not just "driving in a circle" just as golf is not just "hitting a ball in a hole"

      Yah, yelling at him will really defuse any tension, cops acting like rabid dogs as usual.

      were is the speed? 28-50 mph and the police in Germany would have stoped him for driving to slow on the Autobahn.... different culturs different understanding of high speed... high speed starts there were most carĀ“s run into their speed limiter 155mph + X

      "High speed" chases are so much more exciting in the movies. Even a real chase with a NASCAR driver is boring.

      "Even a racing driver isn't going beat the concerted efforts of the police." Proof read much?

      Hey Tyler, - the first step is admitting you have a problem. Thank goodness nobody was hurt or killed.

      He injected three marijuanas and then became addicted and his life was ruined. Nancy Grace told me so. ;)

      Google mobius action camera. $65 online, and gives extremely crisp wide angle 1080p video... cheap as dirt. And you can overlay other information too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5OqUyPc6Ls So explain to me why we pay an absolute FORTUNE as tax payers for these craptastic low resolution 480p dashcams in cop cars? It makes no sense!

        At about 2gb per hour compressed, where are these hours of 1080p being stored in car? What about the months of legally required storage for all of the cars in a precinct?
