Alex Tagliani to enter Kansas Grand-Am race with R.Ferri/AIM

Alex Tagliani IndyCar 2013Alex Tagliani will team up with Grand-Am GT co-champion Jeff Segal for next weekend's Grand-Am round at Kansas.

The Canadian will drive the R.Ferri/AIM Autosport Racing with Ferrari 458 Italia as a stand-in for Max Papis, who has a clashing commitment in the NASCAR Nationwide event at Mid-Ohio.

"Teaming with Jeff Segal, one of the top drivers in the Rolex Series, will allow me to learn a great deal about driving these cars," Tagliani said.

"I fully intend to support the team in the best way that I can, and contribute to the best result possible."

Segal said that he believes the team will benefit from Tagliani's oval experience.

"I am very happy having a driver the caliber of Alex join our team for Kansas," Segal said.

"He's a top-flight driver who has won races and poles in Indy Car. The Kansas banking is a pretty big part of that track.

"His experience on those types of ovals, in addition to his road racing ability, is all pretty exciting for our team. I am really looking forward to meeting Alex and racing with him."

Tagliani's IndyCar future remains uncertain after Bryan Herta Autosport asked him to step aside prior to last weekend's round at Mid-Ohio.

However, he remains under contract, and team owner Bryan Herta told AUTOSPORT last weekend that he was not ruling out the possibility of the 39-year-old appearing in the #98 car again this year.
