Driver Quote: Alex Tagliani

“Naturally, I’m a little bit apprehensive going into Toronto after what happened in Pocono. Obviously this is an important double-header race weekend for Barracuda Racing as we continue trying to turn the season around.

“I definitely feel that we have a good street course car, but we’ve had surprises before like in Detroit, so I’m a little bit cautious. However, I trust the Barracuda Racing team. The boys did great this past weekend putting the car back together and hopefully we can regain some momentum in Toronto.”
