The Penske and Ganassi drivers each blew an engine during this weeks test at Iowa, resulting in a 10-grid spot penalty for an unapproved engine change.

A.J. Foyt Racing's Mike Conway and Dale Coyne Racing Texas winner Justin Wilson also suffered engine failures in Iowa, resulting in penalties.

Takuma Sato of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing and Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing's Josef Newgarden will each serve a 10 spot penalty in Milwaukee for unapproved engine changes dating back to last week in Texas.

5 of the 6 cars with penalties are Honda powered.
