"It's bringing you into our office," said Tagliani, who set up the media event with the hope of shedding more light on the NASCAR Canadian Tire series.

Now that I've been to their office, I think I will continue to watch it from the sidelines.
The tires struggle to grip the sun soaked asphalt as the car slips sideways ever so slightly. The vehicle is quickly brought back under control, in direct contradiction to my racing heartbeat. The engine screams as Livingston tears through the straightaway. The vibrations from the motor reach my New Balance 998 J Crew Navy ears and shake the contents of my skull. The earplugs Tagliani's wife offered would have been a wise decision.

Tagliani is concerned that Canadian NASCAR's leniency in calling penalties has fostered an environment where racers benefit from eliminating the competition. If allowed to continue, NASCAR racing could degrade from a trial of endurance and skill into a glorified demolition derby, he said.
Tagliani is coming off a disappointing outcome in the Alberta Has Energy 300 on Friday, when he held the pole position until the 269th lap. The speed of the race slowed as 11 cautions were issued for 94 laps, including two red flags. One of the incidents involved Tagliani being spun out of position, causing him to finish in 13th place.

Tagliani set up the event, but CanTorque Inc. owner Colin Livingston was behind the wheel. I hopped into the vehicle and as the engine roared to life, more than 500 horsepower rocked the car's frame. You can feel how powerful the machine is as you accelerate through the turns.

The success of Canadian racing is an issue dear to Tagliani's heart. He is working with the media as well as meeting with the series director to offer his opinions on how to help the sport thrive in the long term.
"Being involved in the sport and making the sport better, that's what will give the upcoming drivers a chance and that's what we at Tagliani Motor Sports are trying to do."
"The Indy Car, Champ Car split (in 2007) really hurt us. Maybe Paul Tracy and myself should have gone to the oval (Indy Car) and we could have been established and in a better position long term," he said. "But we decided to stay Champ Car. We decided to stay true to ourselves as Canadians, and we were attracted to Canadian races. Once Champ Car collapsed and we were out of the sport, it created a lot of confusion for Canadian fans."
"In my humble opinion, NASCAR has to be more strict and severe with their penalties," said the Montreal racer.
