Musgrave to Miss O'Reilly 200/Suspended by NASCAR

Former O'Reilly 200 winner Ted Musgrave has proven what a hot temper will get you in Nascar's Truck Series...a week off.

Musgrave, in the #1 Mopar Dodge who won Memphis in 2003, will sit out Saturday night's O'Reilly 200.

He's suspended one race for retaliating against another driver last week.

The 2005 Truck Series champion wrecked with rookie Kelly Bires on Friday night in Milwaukee.

He then restarted his truck, chased down Bires, and forced him into the wall.

Musgrave was also penalized 50 points, fined $10,000, and placed on probation through the end of the year.

Brad Keselowski will serve as Musgraves replacement for this weekend's race here.

Green flag of the O'Reilly 200 drops at 8pm Saturday at the Memphis Motorsports Park.
