This thread will be used to announce all penalties levied during the IndyCar racing season.
Penalties posted here will include Points Penalties, Time Penalties, or formal Written warnings issued against any drivers for each event.
Once posted here, penalties are final. Nothing will be posted here until all evidence has been reviewed, drivers interviewed when necessary, and all incidents discussed by the panel.

THe first race of our IndyCar season was a bit light on entires, but was still pretty heavy on on track action. We saw several great battles throughout the race, especially several battles between Drizute and Frank.
We also saw an incredibly dominant performance by Power, who took the pole, and led every single lap from Green to Checkered flags.
There were a few incidents that did get reviewed. Results are as follows:
No further issues were seen or reported. It was a fun race overall, even with a smaller grid. Let's hope Long Beach goes as well (not likely )
See you in California!

As expected, Long Beach provided a lot of activity. There was some great racing, there was the anticipated driver errors, and there was some not so great racing.
All things considered though. we came away in pretty good shape. We had 5 incidents that were asked to be reviewed.
The panel really doesn't like having to review incidents and hand out penalties. We do it in order to maintain the high standard that CanAm VRL drivers are capable of, and known for. Especially now that we are live streaming our race broadcasts, we must always be on our best footing. While Long Beach is known to be a difficult track, some of what we saw was simply inexcusable. We can do better. We MUST do better.
With that said, please all remember that Indy is a beast in it's own ways. We saw that last spring when we raced there. The aero wash in the turns will bite you if you aren't prepared for it. Let's be prepared for it, and let's put on a better show than we just did.
See you at the Brickyard.
