INDYCAR officials issued a memo to IZOD IndyCar Series teams clarifying competition rules used this weekend.

Qualifying Procedures: IZOD IndyCar Series officials will shorten the amount of time to call for a red flag following a local yellow condition. Any driver who is found improving segment times in a segment displaying a yellow Condition will be subject to penalty, which could include loss of lap time.

Belle Isle pit lane: There will be a cone placed on the left rear corner of the unoccupied pit box at pit entry where the division between the fast and slow lanes begins. The Car occupying pit box 25 (Car 18) is allowed to drive to the right of this cone. All other cars must stay to the left of this cone.

Blocking: Drivers moving in reaction to pursuing Drivers will be subject to review for blocking. Where the driving line permits, Drivers defending their position must leave room for the pursuing Car.
