Tagliani car to lose sponsorship?
According to AutoRacing1.com sources the news continues to get worse on the sponsorship front for Champ Car teams.  We are hearing that Alex Tagliani's #8 car won't have a sponsor after the Toronto race.
He's been carrying Lexington Energy Services so far.  This is a company that reported in an SEC filing we recently read that as of March of this year had not had any revenue for the past two years, which makes sense because the LXN2 logo on the side pods is for a product that doesn't actually exist.  We hear the guy who had been CEO of Lexington and who did the sponsorship deal got sacked recently, so that deal is now over.
The #8 car has Steelback beer sponsorship (and some Wal-Mart Canada) for the St. Jovite and Toronto races, but since Steelback isn't distributed in Western Canada that doesn't extend to Edmonton.  So, after Toronto, the car is unsponsored as of right now.  That could of course change as the #8 side of the team searches for a replacement.
