Andretti-HVM has been fined $2000 for pitlane infractions during last weekend's IndyCar race at Barber.
The team, which runs the car driven by rookie Carlos Munoz, was deemed to be in violation of rule 18.104.22.168 (pit personnel not wearing proper attire) and rule 22.214.171.124 (more than six crew members over the wall) of the series regulations.
Munoz had a fraught race in Alabama, his problems beginning with a spin immediately after switching from wet tyres to slicks on a still-drying track.
That incident damaged his left-front suspension and forced a lengthy spell in the pits for repairs before he was able to rejoin for the final eight laps.
The Colombian's stablemate Ryan Hunter-Reay won the race ahead of Marco Andretti for an Andretti Autosport 1-2.
