INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Bryan Herta Autosport has signed Alex Tagliani to drive in the Izod IndyCar Series this season.
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.
