Engine Manufacturer Championship

***Note: All points procedures and totals are subject to change prior to the start of the 2015 season.

Engine Manufacturer Championship points have been revised for 2015 to further reward reliability and competitiveness of the Chevrolet and Honda 2.2-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 engines.

The new structure is part of the sporting and technical regulations that comprise the Verizon IndyCar Series rulebook released to teams.

The top three finishing positions by each manufacturer will score points. Additional points are available to the manufacturers for an engine that meets the 2,500-mile threshold (10 points), the manufacturer that earns the Verizon P1 Award for the Indianapolis 500 (nine points), the manufacturer that earns the Verizon P1 Award in the 16 other races (one point) and the manufacturer that leads the most race laps (two points).

Like the entrant/driver championship points structure, double base points will be earned for the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race on May 24 and the season-ending GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma on Aug. 30.
