Alex Tagliani #34 Rexall Edmonton Indy
Pos. 21st overall, 4th of non-quaified drivers

"We made a really good change at the end of the session that moved us into 21st place. Prior to that we were struggling a little bit, there was a lot of wind all day and at one point you start underestimating yourself and second guessing yourself, thinking that it may just be a question of confidence. But the change that we made at the end suddenly gave me a car that felt good to me and I got my confidence back in the car at that point. Too bad that it was late in the session but hopefully the weather will be nice tomorrow and we can get back out there and continue on what we started today."
