A former NASCAR driver who authorities say evaded police during a 150-mph chase through parts of Nevada, Arizona and Utah last year is nearing a resolution of his case.
The Spectrum of St. George reports attorneys for 35-year-old Timothy Tyler Andrew Walker expect a plea deal to be finalized next month on Utah charges. Walker has pleaded not guilty to drug and evading police charges.
Court documents show Walker, of Hermosa Beach, California, has reached a plea deal on Arizona charges.
Walker was arrested in January 2013 by Utah Highway Patrol troopers near St. George to end a chase that began in Nevada and crossed into Arizona before reaching Utah.
Troopers reported finding methamphetamine, marijuana and vodka in the car.
NASCAR suspended Walker in 2007 for violating its substance abuse policy.
