Driver Quote: Alex Tagliani
I'm really looking forward to the Long Beach race because it's going to be a very important test for the Barracuda Racing team. Getting familiar with the new Firestone street course tires was a challenge for us in St. Pete as we worked to get a hold on the setup and grip to be competitive, so getting back on those tires in Long Beach is going to be a way for us to evaluate where we are.

We're accustomed to achieving very promising results in qualifying from our 2012 season, where we were really good in street and road courses. The Barracuda Racing team has been working really hard on things that are going to make us competitive and able to run up front for the 2013 season, and I'm confident we'll get there.

There are some familiar faces and friends that we're also looking forward to seeing in Long Beach. We'll catch up with our buddy Daniel Goddard from The Young & The Restless. Also, Bronte is a big fan of theTwilight movie and we found out that Jackson Radbone - he plays Jasper in the movies - is racing in the Pro Celebrity race so we're planning on saying hello and giving him some tips. It should be a great weekend on the streets of Long Beach.
