Nestled in the seat of his Barracuda Racing machine, there are days where Alex Tagliani must feel like he is a small fish among IndyCar’s big sharks.

As the featured driver on this second-year team, the Lachenaie, Que., native must go up against the Team Andrettis and Team Penskes week after week, outfits that have far more financial resources than Tagliani’s modest organization.

That’s not to say you should be counting out Tagliani from being competitive in this weekend’s back-to-back Honda Indy Toronto races that will weave through the Exhibition Grounds. Far from it.
