INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The IndyCar Series has withdrawn its $10,000 fine and probation against driver Sebastien Bourdais after accusing him of unsafe driving during a race in Texas.

IndyCar said Wednesday it had rescinded the penalties following an internal review. It did not give a reason for the change.

Bourdais was penalized after saying he thought he had positioned himself to prevent Justin Wilson from passing him on Lap 121 of the race earlier this month. When Wilson tried to make the move, the two cars crashed.
