MOORESVILLE, North Carolina – Carlos Huertas’ first-ever Verizon Series victory in last Saturday’s Grand Prix of Houston Race 1 has been tarnished, to a degree, after officials discovered his fuel tank was one-tenth of a gallon over capacity and the rear-wing height did not meet technical requirements.

Huertas and will keep the victory but the team has been fined a total of $10,000 — $5,000 for each infraction.

Amongst the 23 drivers that have competed so far in the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series are four rookies, which have already tallied three top-ten finishes in the first two races.

Carlos Munoz, Mikhail Aleshin and Carlos Huertas were all able to make their way through the carnage during the latest race in Long Beach to place third, sixth and 10th respectively.
