Firestone 600 post-event infraction

INDIANAPOLIS (Wednesday, Aug. 31, 2016) – INDYCAR announced the following post-event infraction from the conclusion of the Firestone 600, which was completed Aug. 27 at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas:

•  INDYCAR fined Schmidt Peterson Motorsports $20,000 and penalized the team 25 entrant and driver points after the No. 5 entry of James Hinchcliffe was found in violation of Rule 14.6.8.2.2 of the Verizon IndyCar Series rulebook (domed skid wear) in post-race inspection.

“In our post-race analysis this week it was determined the skid plate on the No. 5 entry was worn and in violation of our rules,” said Jay Frye, INDYCAR president of competition and operations. “This was both a performance advantage and a safety concern, as the domed portion of the skid had been ground down to the point it would have been ineffective.”

Members may contest the imposition of the penalties pursuant to the procedures and timelines detailed in the review and appeal procedures of the Verizon IndyCar Series rulebook.
