IndyCar: Alex Tagliani getting ready for Indy 500 return

From press release

Canadian race car driver Alex Tagliani will be back in an Indy car this Sunday, testing ahead of the 98th running of the Indianapolis 500.

Tagliani has been watching IndyCar from the sidelines this season, taking part only in three United SportsCar Championship (USCC) events with RSR Racing.

But he has signed with Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing to drive the No. 68 Dallara-Honda in the Indy 500.

"It's going to be an interesting month of May," said the Lachenaie native ahead of his return.

"I can't wait to get back in 'Indy 500 mode'.

"The team is new, so obviously it's important that we learn how to work and communicate together. It's going to be difficult, but that's why we have six days of testing."
