Ryan Lochte can’t drive 55, but he can drive 175

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Ryan Lochte is arguably the fastest swimmer on the planet. Apparently, he's no slouch on the road, either.

The three-time Olympic gold medalist, who could challenge Michael Phelps' record of eight golds won in the 2008 Games, was at Daytona International Speedway Thursday serving as the Grand Marshall for the Gatorade Duel 150s. Lochte, a Daytona native, is a self-proclaimed race fan. When asked how fast he's driven on the road, Lochte hesitated — and probably for good reason.

"175," he finally revealed.

He didn't say exactly when or where, just that it came on a highway when he made sure no one was around.

Kyle Busch would be jealous.
