Simon Pagenaud’s Ilmor-Chevrolet engine successfully reached the desired 2,500 mile life cycle in Toronto and Chevy has thus received ten bonus points. IndyCar revised the manufacturer points rules this season to “further reward reliability and competitiveness.”
Honda, meanwhile, has been docked 40 points as two of their engines failed to meet their 2,500 mile lifecycle. Both engines were used by Andretti Autosport.
Chevrolet leads Honda by 167 points in the manufacturer’s championship as the Verizon IndyCar Series heads to Auto Club Speedway for the MavTV 500. Team Chevy’s Juan Pablo Montoya leads the driver’s championship, with fellow Chevy drivers Will Power and Scott Dixon in second and third, respectively.
