Alex Tagliani Makes Contact With Wall, His Day Ends

Pole sitter Alex Tagliani made some contact with the wall between 1 and, and broke something on the right front wall. He managed to pit, but the right front suspension was wobbling like crazy. The crew is unpacking Tags from his car and his day is over. It's a real bummer, because a lot of people were hoping for Tagliani to do well. HIs was an interesting story, since he was one of the first non Big Three (Penske, Target Ganassi, and Andretti Green) to get the pole position. A lot of people loved the feel good story of Sam Schmidt's team and how well his team was doing.

Barring any problems with Davey Hamilton or Paul Tracy, Tagliani will end up in 28th, even though he's currently sitting in 26th at this moment.
