A.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.
