Anyone think there would be points implications after the Hornish/Kanaan fracas? Think again.
Team Penske and Andretti Green Racing have been fined $25,000 each for unsportsmanlike conduct on pit road as cars returned immediately after the checkered flag.Hang on a sec: Sam’s Daddy gets a one race suspension (and probation?) for shoving a driver, but this Fedele guy gets suspended indefinitely for jumping Sam’s Daddy. What?
Drivers Tony Kanaan of Andretti Green Racing and Sam Hornish Jr. of Team Penske have been fined an unspecified amount for their actions.
In addition, the league announced that Anthony Fedele has had his league-issued hard card, which was granted through Andretti Green Racing, and credential request opportunities suspended indefinitely. Sam Hornish Sr. has been suspended from pit lane for one race.
In addition, the teams, the drivers and Hornish Sr. have been placed on probation until Dec. 31.
And didn't Sam say Tony's chop bent a toe link on the #6 car on pit re-entry? Doesn't that demand something like a one lap penalty? Or taking away Tony's golf cart privledges? Or at least a cake in the face, right?
Looks like the Gentle Hand of Tolerance strikes again.
