INDIANAPOLIS – IndyCar announced its post-event infractions from the Shell and Pennzoil Grand Prix of Houston Race No. 1, which was held June 28 at Houston’s NRG Park, on Wednesday.

Series officials fined Dale Coyne Racing for a pair of technical violations on its No. 18 Verizon IndyCar Series entry driven by Carlos Huertas, the race winner.

The team was found to have violated Rule 14.6.4.18 (Rear Wing Height) and Rule 14.7.2 (Fuel Cell Capacity) of the Verizon IndyCar Series rulebook. The team was fined a total of $10,000 – $5,000 for each infraction. IndyCar officials determined that the infractions did not impact the finishing order of the race or final position of the offending team, so he’ll keep the win.

The members may contest the imposition of the penalty pursuant to the procedures and timelines detailed in the review and appeal procedures of the Verizon IndyCar Series rulebook.
