Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing announced today the signing of Alex Tagliani to the team's second entry into the 98th running of the Indianapolis 500.
"It has always been our goal at SFHR to hire talent for credentials, and I am excited to have that opportunity again to include Tag in our Indianapolis 500 lineup, alongside Josef," SFHR co-owner Fisher said. "Wink [Hartman] has helped us bring the proper individuals together to provide a solidly prepared effort toward success at Indy. We continue to have the support of the RW Motorsports founder, Steve Weirich, for this second program and are looking forward to building on to this second entry even further during the second half of the season."
Tagliani, who will run the #68 SFHR/RW entry, brings both Rookie of the Year (2009) and pole sitting (2011) credentials to the team.
"I am very excited about this opportunity with Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing for this year's Indy 500," said Tagliani. "I love this race, and this track has always been a comfortable fit for me. I couldn't ask for a better opportunity with SFHR, and I will do my best to contribute to the success of the team."
The second SFHR entry becomes the 17th Honda and 27th confirmed car for May's Indianapolis 500.
