Champ Car World Series Announces Penalties From Portland Race.

INDIANAPOLIS (June 25, 2004) -- The Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford announced fines and penalties today resulting from actions by drivers both during and after last week's Champ Car Grand Prix of Portland.

Bruno Junqueira and Paul Tracy were each fined $10,000 for violation of Champ Car rule 2.8.8 which concerns criticism of officials and personal demeanor. Both drivers will also have 10 championship points held in abeyance for the remainder of the 2004 season pending no further related infractions. Tracy was also fined $5,000 for violation of Champ Car rule 2.8.4 concerning objectionable gestures.

Alex Tagliani was penalized two (2) championship points effective immediately for the violation of Champ Car rule 2.8.5 concerning the failure to follow the instructions of race officials. The deduction drops Tagliani's season total from 63 to 61 points and leaves him in eighth place in the standings.
