Alex Tagliani
July 18, 2010


THE MODERATOR: We'll go ahead and get started with Alex Tagliani. If you could talk about today's race here in Toronto.
ALEX TAGLIANI: Yeah, it's pretty unfortunate the way it ended up. We didn't have the fastest car, but we had a car that was good enough to finish sixth. We put ourselves in a position always to lose quite a bit of spots in the pits. We had to pass the same car twice and three times sometimes on the track. So a lot of hard work.
We were back in the hunt towards the end of the race. With all the attrition, we were in a good position to bring the car home in sixth. On that restart, Tomas just brought us into the wall in turn one and that was it. So we went from sixth to 17th, so it was pretty bad.
THE MODERATOR: We'll open it up to questions.

Q. Alex, could you talk about you're out there running your race and all of a sudden second year in a row into the wall.
ALEX TAGLIANI: It's unfortunate for the local sponsor and the Bowers & Wilkins Hot Wheels machine for this Canadian race. But the most frustrating thing is a guy that does four races a year, you go see him, he tells you the F word, just payback, see you later. He was like actually happy that he didn't finish the race and he took us out. Pretty long time to keep a grudge.
You know, either the series does something maybe a little bit more strict and gets the drivers to be a little bit more courteous and respectful, or, like I always said, if you take it in your own hands, it never ends. He pushes you back, you push him back, it's never going to stop.
His attitude was really sad at the end of the race. I thought that was pretty shitty.
THE MODERATOR: Alex, we appreciate you taking the time to come in today. We'll see you in Edmonton.
ALEX TAGLIANI: I hope we'll be back in Edmonton because I have a lot of front wings to damage.
