INDIANAPOLIS – IndyCar officials are handing out another fine.
E.J. Viso's team with KV Racing Technology was the latest to get hit, drawing a $25,000 fine for violating a rule regarding brakes during a post-qualifying inspection. Viso's team also was fined $15,000 on Sunday for additional violations involving brakes and other technical issues during a pre-qualifying inspection.
The announcement came Tuesday, two days after the series doled out $275,000 in fines for a variety of technical violations — ranging from the use of improper cooling equipment to improper weight distribution in the cars.
Viso qualified for the nine-driver pole shootout Saturday after posting a four-lap qualifying average of 224.422, but did not make a full attempt during the shootout and will start ninth in Sunday's race.
