Driver Quote: Alex Tagliani
“I’m really excited to race at Pocono Raceway. I’ve heard a lot about the track – that it’s obviously very unique and challenging, with different corners and different banking.

“Luckily, I had the chance to use the Honda HPD simulator to test the track this week. I think it’s going to be interesting for us to get there and test on Thursday, after trying the track on the simulator.

“Hopefully we can get our season back underway. It will be very important for the whole team at Barracuda Racing. I don’t think we have showed our pace yet, contrary to this time last year. Yes, we have had some bad luck but I’ve also kind of forced the issue at times instead of just doing what we could and walking away with some points, so it’s been disappointing on that aspect.

“We just need to roll up our sleeves and work hard to get back to the pace we know we’re capable of doing. When we have pace and we’re fast, I think it makes everything a lot easier. We have a lot of confidence that we’re going to get there soon.”
