Pocono IndyCar: Ganassi duo among six engine penalties

Scott Dixon, Ganassi, Pocono IndyCar 2013Six drivers have been issued with 10-place grid penalties for unapproved engine changes ahead of the IndyCar race at Pocono.

Five of the six are from Honda-powered teams and include Ganassi's Scott Dixon and Dario Franchitti, Dale Coyne Racing's Justin Wilson and Pippa Mann, and BHA's Alex Tagliani.

The only Chevrolet-powered runner to be affected is Andretti's EJ Viso.

Most of the penalties are for breaching the rule prohibiting engines being changed before they meet their minimum 2000 mile threshold.

The exception of Franchitti, whose change is based on a claim from the team that his unit is down on power.

Under the regulations, Ganassi will pay a fee to have the engine dyno-tested, and if its claims are validated then the fee will be refunded and a fresh unit will be added to Franchitti's engine pool in its place.

If the engine is determined to be within the accepted tolerances, the fee will be forfeit and the unit will be returned to the team at its current mileage.
