Driver Quote: Alex Tagliani
“I’m definitely excited about Toronto and the beginning of the two Canadian races. It’s a big week and we have lots to accomplish before we even hit the track on Friday. Once we get into the race weekend, we have some fun events planned with the Barracuda Networks group, Bowers & Wilkins team and some of our other sponsors. It’s a big weekend outside of all the track activity.
The last time we were on a street course was Detroit and I remember that we had an amazing car. The Honda Indy Toronto is going to be our second street course with Honda power and I feel really good about it. I’ve been really close before at this track – I’ve finished second and third – so I’m looking for that higher step on the podium this weekend. I feel that good things are coming. Team Barracuda – BHA has been way too fast and way too strong to not get the reward. We just need some better luck and hopefully this is the weekend that our luck turns around.”
