Scheckter, driver of the No. 52 Red Bull Cheever Racing Dallara/Infiniti/Firestone, was penalized pursuant to Rules 8.1 and 8.3 (A) of the Indy Racing League Rule Book.

He will be eligible to return to on-track activity at the 86th Indianapolis 500 on Wednesday, May 8, three days after Opening Day on May 5. His probation has been extended until Dec. 31.

According to Dr. Henry Bock, director of medical services for the IRL, Scheckter is now medically cleared to drive after suffering injuries in a crash during the Firestone Indy 225 at Nazareth Speedway.

Scheckter may appeal the penalty according to Section 12.1 of the Rule Book. An appeal may result in an increase, decrease or no change to the penalty.
