Chevy to replace engines in 11 Indy cars

Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Chevrolet will replace engines in all 11 of its entries in the IndyCar series.

A problem was discovered during testing earlier this week at Sonoma and the decision comes just days prior to this week's race in Long Beach, California.

It will also force all teams to start with a penalty of 10 qualifying places because IndyCar has a rule prohibiting engine replacements before running 1,850 miles or if they sustain a failure during a race.

James Hinchcliffe's Chevy engine blew during the test session earlier this week and it was already announced that he would be penalized 10 spots because of the engine change.

Just two races have been run thus far on the circuit and both were won by Chevy drivers. Helio Castroneves captured the opener in Brazil and Will Power claimed the checkered flag in Alabama.
