Professional racer Alex Tagliani, who totes the nickname of ‘Tag’, was born in Lachenaie, Quebec in 1973. He grew up knowing he wanted to race and set out to make his mark on the track. Over the years, Tagliani has raced in several different series including IndyCar, Champ Car, and Rolex Sports Car Series, as well as NASCAR’s Gander Outdoors Truck Series, and Xfinity Series. Currently, Tagliani competes in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series, with 22 Racing owned by Scott Steckly. He pilots the #18 Chevrolet Camaro with sponsors that include EpiPen — a product near and dear to Tagliani’s heart considering he suffers from severe food allergies and has experienced episodes of anaphylaxis.
