Bryan Herta Autosport has signed Alex Tagliani to drive in the Izod IndyCar Series this season. The team won the Indianapolis 500 last year with Dan Wheldon as the driver. Tagliani drove the car in last year's season finale at Las Vegas, where Wheldon was killed in an early 15-car accident. Tagliani finished 14th in points last season and won poles at Indianapolis and Texas while driving for Sam Schmidt Motorsports. He sat out the race at Kentucky when Wheldon took his seat as a warm-up for Las Vegas. Tagliani has never won in IndyCar, and his career-best finish is fourth in a race. BHA has a factory deal with Lotus and said Monday it hopes to announce a sponsor for Tagliani later this week.
