Red Flag Repairs

I was wondering, I know that it is illegal to make repairs to your car
when the race has been red flagged.  But what is the penalty for working
on the car?  I seen to remember that a few years ago someone was working
on their car and it was a one lap penalty....If the penalty is this
minor..even 5 or 10 plaps...wouldn't it be worth it for the teams to fix
the cars and take the penalty rather than wait to fix the car under green?
Here's to hoping Craven can at least start the race at Sears Point.  And
I am guessing that Elliott won't make the trip , so my pick for a sears
point sub is Tom Kendall or Dorsey Schroeder.
