IndyCar announces engine penalties
IZOD IndyCar Series officials announced the following teams will receive 10-spot grid penalties for today’s race for an unapproved engine change:

#9 Dixon (Rule 15.5.1)

15.5.1. (Minimum mileage): Engine was changed before minimum mileage threshold (“Change-Out Mileage”) of 2,000 miles.

#10 Franchitti (15.6.8)

15.6.8. (Down on Power claim): Removing the Engine to test a Down on Power (“DOP”) claim shall be classed as an Unapproved Engine Change-Out.

#9 Viso (Rule 15.5.1)

15.5.1. (Minimum mileage): Engine was changed before minimum mileage threshold (“Change-Out Mileage”) of 2,000 miles.

#18 Mann (Rule 15.5.1)

15.5.1. (Minimum mileage): Engine was changed before minimum mileage threshold (“Change-Out Mileage”) of 2,000 miles.

#19 Wilson (Rule 15.5.1)

15.5.1. (Minimum mileage): Engine was changed before minimum mileage threshold (“Change-Out Mileage”) of 2,000 miles.

#98 Tagliani (Rule 15.5.1 and 15.5.4b )

15.5.1. (Minimum mileage): Engine was changed before minimum mileage threshold (“Change-Out Mileage”) of 2,000 miles.

15.5.4b (Indianapolis 500 engine use): Full-Season Entrants have the choice to use up the changed-out Engine or to use up the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race Engine first. Should the changed-out Engine be refitted before the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race Engine reaches its Change-Out Mileage, it must remain in the Car for the balance of its Change-Out Mileage. Both Engines must reach their Change-Out Mileages before another Engine can be fitted to the Car.
