Alex Tagliani in stock cars, pure entertainment

Alex Tagliani is enjoying a stock car career North of the border in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series, but will be participating in the NASCAR Nationwide race this weekend at Road America

I feel like Alex Tagliani has raced everything under the sun. With appearances in NASCAR, Sports Cars, and a long career in IndyCar, he knows how to wheel a car.

That ability to wheel a car is the biggest reason that I cannot wait for the NASCAR Nationwide race at Road America this weekend. He has proved in IndyCar, and previous road racing starts in stock cars that he is one of the most entertaining drivers when battling for position.

Always sporting a fantastic goatee, the Canadian driver even was given the keys to the coveted No. 10 Chip Ganassi Racing car at Fontana last year, which almost could have been treated as a job interview. A late race spin hurt his changes at racing for the win.

While I do not directly condone the use of the chrome horn all the time, Alex Tagliani has been on both ends of it. Most famously with Jacques Villeneuve in 2012 at Montreal. Two Canadian battling hard for the lead.

So this weekend, Tag will be running in the always competitive No. 22 who knows what is in store at Road America,

Enjoy some of 'Tag's finer moments ahead of this weekend's Nationwide race in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
