Tagliani Autosport and popular Canadian IndyCar/NASCAR and SportsCar racer, race winner and Indianapolis 500 pole sitter Alex Tagliani, and three-time and defending NASCAR Canadian Tire Series champion Scott Steckly, announced an alliance for Tagliani to drive a 22 Racing prepared Dodge Challenger in a return to the Series for the 2014 season.

A long tradition of excellence in preparation, presentation and performance is what brought 22 Racing, Driven Motorsport and Tagliani Autosport together to strike up the partnership to drive the Tagliani Autosport/Team EpiPen/Dicom Express No. 18.

"I'm very excited to have Alex drive out of our 22 Racing stable this season," stated team owner/driver Scott Steckly.

"Tag is a proven professional that will make our team even better with his passion and grit to be the best at what he does. He will bring another level of competition to the Series, so that means we will all have to race harder for wins and the championship with Alex out there," Steckly continued.
