Driver Quote: Alex Tagliani
“I’m looking forward to Baltimore because so far, the Barracuda Racing No. 98 car has been fairly strong on street courses. Baltimore is an exciting event – it was very popular last year and had a fantastic turnout, so we hope to see that again this year. The track is very challenging and demanding. It’s physical because it’s bumpy, but I look forward to seeing the new changes on the racecourse. Hopefully it will improve passing for the fans.

We had a pretty good race in Sonoma, and we want to continue with strong finishes as we head into the last two races of the season. Our goal is to finish the championship strong. Since we switched to Honda in May, we’ve been working toward that goal. This is going to be an important weekend for Barracuda Racing. Hopefully we can show great speed again with our car and finish strong.”
