Andretti-HVM incurs Barber Indycar penalty

The Andretti-HVM team has been found guilty of infringing two pit-lane rules during the Indycar Series event at Barber Motorsport Park.

Indycar officials have fined Andretti-HVM $2000 for actions during the 27 April Verizon IndyCar Series race at Barber Motorsports Park.

Andretti-HVM, which fields the #34 Verizon IndyCar Series entry driven by Carlos Munoz, was found to have violated Rule 7.10.1.7 regarding pit personnel not wearing the proper attire and Rule 7.10.1.8, concerning the number of crew members over the wall during the road course event last weekend.

The team 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.
