Helio Castroneves said that he was “very shocked” to learn his race-winning car at Texas had failed post-race inspection.
IndyCar has fined Team Penske $35,000 and docked it 15 entrant points because the underwing on Helio Castroneves’ race-winning car at Texas didn’t meet specifications.

Rahal is back at Texas Motor Speedway, where last June he was out in front and seemingly on his way to finally winning again when he drifted too high and brushed the wall.
He didn’t quite make it to the winners circle at the Indy 500, but IZOD IndyCar driver James Hinchcliffe’s 21st-place finish equals a victory for Texas IndyCar race fans!
IndyCar has levied $275,000 in fines to 13 different teams, including Indianapolis 500 pole-sitter Ryan Briscoe.
