NASCAR Racing Experience CEO charged with strangling young woman in Nashville hotel — Robert ‘Bob’ Lutz

A young female in her twenties says that 52-year-old NASCAR Racing Experience CEO Robert ‘Bob’ Lutz strangled her in a downtown Nashville hotel room over the weekend, as the city celebrated a large Nascar branded event in the downtown core this week. An arrest warrant for Lutz alleges he placed both of his hands around her throat for approximately one minute during the argument, during which time she fought back and attempted to escape his grasp. Officers report the victim’s voice was very hoarse, and documented redness and injuries consistent with strangulation. Lutz claimed “nothing happened”, and was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail charged with aggravated assault/strangulation. He is free after posting a $25,000 bond to his South Carolina address. Lutz is also the CEO of the Richard Petty Driving Experience, and the Myrtle Beach Speedway.
