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.
