UPDATE FAZZT Race Team driver Alex Tagliani, who was admitted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis and held overnight to receive treatment to combat chest congestion and a persistent cough, was released late Wednesday afternoon. The French-Canadian is expected to be ready to go when practice for the 94th Indianapolis 500 begins on Saturday.
"Even when I was laid up, they were there putting in the hours to get it all done," Tagliani said of his FAZZT squad, which is headquartered in Indianapolis.
Tagliani, who relocated to Indianapolis earlier this month, is scheduled to be on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with other IZOD IndyCar Series veterans on opening day May 15 in the No. 77 entry. Bruno Junqueira will drive the second FAZZT entry at Indy.
05/12/10 IndyCar driver Alex Tagliani has been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the Indianapolis Methodist Hospital with a respiratory aliment. He is on his 2nd round of strong antibiotics.
It is not pneumonia they say, but he is in the ICU, so it's nothing to scoff at.
Follow him on his Facebook page and send your well wishes.
