Day five of practice at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway proved successful for Alex Tagliani and his Team Barracuda – BHA crew on Wednesday.

The team ran 47 laps, putting Tagliani in P15 for the day with a best time of 220.060. After getting out of his No. 98 Dallara DW12 powered by Honda, Tagliani expressed his confidence that the changes being made to his race car were moving in the right direction.

“It’s the first practice day where we had some pretty decent laps and made some really good improvement on the car: running in traffic, stability, race running. It was quite nice. The Team Barracuda – BHA crew did a good job. We’re also getting all caught up with the Honda people and everything is running smoothly.

It was a good day. I mean, finishing a day like this at the Speedway with a smile and with a car that we feel we can race is always very nice. I’m very pleased with the Number 98 Team Barracuda – BHA car. We’re going to start to come up with some big guns and we’ll see what we can do!”

The Canadian driver will have two more practice days before he attempts to put the car on pole for the second year in a row on Pole Day, Saturday, May 19. A week of fan activities and appearances will follow, all leading up to the 96th running of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 27, 2012. Tagliani’s team will look to defend its 2011 victory at the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
