Engine violation costs Franchitti in Baltimore
BALTIMORE (AP) - Dario Franchitti was moved to the 24th and final starting position Sunday after receiving a 10-grip penalty for an unapproved engine change.
Franchitti was called for violating Rule 15.1.4, which reads: The minimum mileage threshold (Change-Out Mileage) is 1850 miles.
Sebastian Bourdais had the quickest time in warmups Sunday, followed by Will Power, Josef Newgarden, James Jakes and Scott Dixon.
Jakes, however, received a 10-spot grid penalty for a violation of engine sporting regulations and was slated to start in the 23rd position.
Temperatures soared into the high 80s for the race on the streets of Baltimore. Firestone engineers estimated the track temperature to be 110 degrees for the warmup session.
The race is 75 laps covering 153 miles.
