INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ IndyCar has levied $275,000 in fines to 1 different teams, including Indianapolis 500 pole-sitter Ryan Briscoe. The fines covered 18 different infractions discovered in Saturday’s pre-qualifying inspection. IndyCar announced the
penalties Sunday night.
 
The steepest penalty was a $50,000 fine against Fan Force  United, which is fielding a car for ex-Formula One driver Jean Alesi in next Sunday’s Indy 500. The team was fined for a weight violation on the car, which is intended to create parity among all
drivers. IndyCar fined 11 teams $15,000 each for violating technical
rules regarding the braking systems on the new Dallara DW12. Among
those fined were Penske Racing teams for Briscoe and Will Power.
