Update: We’ve heard that Wilson, Bourdais, Servia, Sato, and Legge will be penalized; Wilson for failing tech (didn’t have a dummy weight in the camera pod), and the remaining drivers for unapproved engine changes. It’s too early in the morning here on the best coast for us to figure out the new grid. We’ll be searching for one and share it when we find it.

When last we heard, the lineup below (courtesy INDYCAR PR) was the starting grid for the race. We’ve since heard the order might shake up due to penalties, and the race start has been pulled forward 30 minutes (we’re guessing due to approaching rain). We’ll update this if/when we see a revised version.
