AJ Foyt penalised for technical infringement at Toronto; Conway's podium unaffected

Mike Conway AJ FoytA.J. Foyt Enterprises has been penalised and fined for a technical infringement during last weekend's race at Toronto.

The #14 car of Mike Conway failed a post-race technical inspection after a discrepancy was found in the size of the fuel tank.

"We felt the discrepancy in the size of the fuel tank was enough that it potentially could have provided a track position advantage and the penalty is reflective of that," said Will Phillips, vice president of technology, INDYCAR.

Foyt has been fined $15,000 and penalised 10 entrant points for the discretion, although Conway's podium finish - his first of the season - has been allowed to stand.
