INDYCAR announced on Carb Day that they have made procedural changes for Sunday’s 108th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge at the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.

During Friday’s Drivers meeting, teams and drivers were informed of the following:

  • The dashed white line from the exit of Turn 4 to the pit entry attenuator will be officiated for Sunday’s race. Cars that have left-side tires past the dashed line will be penalized unless entering the pit lane, for incident avoidance or in an obvious attempt to avoid a closed pit lane and return to the racetrack.
    In accordance with INDYCAR penalty guidelines, INDYCAR can impose penalties that include:

Drive-through penalty

If at the conclusion of the race, a time penalty equal to a drive-through penalty

If under yellow condition, the car is ordered to the rear of the restart lineup

Consistent with its use at other NTT INDYCAR SERIES events, EM Motorsport light panels positioned around the track will illuminate all flag conditions, including green, to supplement the traditional cloth flag waved at the start-finish line for both starts and restarts. The EM Motorsport light panels are mounted in addition to the traditional track condition lights used at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Restart procedure:

In collaboration with NTT INDYCAR SERIES teams and drivers, the 2024 restart line designated in the last corner will not be implemented at the “500.”
As in previous years, cars may begin racing (including passing) at the declaration of a green condition.
