CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Ted Musgrave was suspended one race Wednesday for retaliating against another driver during the Truck Series race at the Milwaukee Mile.

Musgrave, the 2005 Truck Series champion, must sit out Saturday night's race at Memphis Motorsports Park. He was also penalized 50 points, fined $10,000 and placed on probation through the end of the year.

Musgrave wrecked with rookie Kelly Bires on Friday night in Milwaukee. He restarted his truck, chased down Bires and forced him into the wall. NASCAR immediately parked him for the rest of the race.

Mike Hillman Sr., general manager of Germain Racing, said Musgrave will be replaced this weekend by Brad Keselowski.

Musgrave's suspension is the first for a driver since Jimmy Spencer was not allowed to race at Bristol in 2003 for punching Kurt Busch after a race in Michigan.
