TNT’S WEBER SUSPENDED FOR TWO RACES

Just what happened in that hotel? TNT has suspended play-by-play man Bill Weber for the network’s final two races of the season. Weber also was suspended for Sunday’s race in New Hampshire. The network declined to specify the reason for the initial suspension last weekend, calling the matter a "private issue." On Sunday the Charlotte Observer reported that Weber got into a "loud, public confrontation" in a Manchester, N.H., hotel on Friday night.

The official TNT release:

Bill Weber will not be part of TNT’s NASCAR coverage of the Cup Series for the network’s last two races. Ralph Sheheen will handle play-by-play duties for The Coke Zero 400 in Daytona and the LifeLock.com 400 from Chicagoland. Sheheen will be calling the races alongside analysts Kyle Petty and Wally Dallenbach in the booth.
