MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Kyle Busch Motorsports has announced that Alex Tagliani will drive the organization’s No. 51 Tundra Aug. 25 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

Tagliani’s No. 51 Tundra will carry sponsorship from three Canadian companies; CanTorque, Spectra Premium and RONA.

The Canadian has two poles, 15 laps led, one top-five and two top-10 finishes across four NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series starts, all coming at the 2.459-mile road course north of the border.

In addition to four Gander Truck Series starts, Tagliani has compiled four poles, 92 laps led, four top-five and five top-10 finishes resulting in an average finish of 13.0 across eight NASCAR Xfinity Series starts, all on road courses.

He currently competes full-time in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series where he has recorded one win, one pole, 42 laps led, three top-five and five top-10 finishes across four starts and sits fourth in the championship standings this season.

Overall across 78 Pinty’s Series starts Tagliani has collected nine wins, 10 poles, 33 top-five and 53 top-10 finishes, including a win in last year’s race which was held prior to the Gander Truck Series event. He finished second in the championship standings in 2018 and third in 2016.

Taglaini is also a veteran of more than 200 Indy car races during his career between the NTT IndyCar Series and the defunct Champ Car World Series. He has one Indy car victory, at Road America in 2004, and won the pole for the 2011 Indianapolis 500.

He will once again pull double-duty, competing in the 51-lap Pinty’s Series race Sunday morning before the 64-lap Gander Truck Series event Sunday afternoon.

“It’s a real honor to represent KBM by driving the 51 truck – I really appreciate Kyle and the entire team’s trust in giving me the opportunity to try to win,” Tagliani said. “Carrying three Canadian companies to support the initiative at CTMP is really special. CanTorque showcasing their new tools made in Canada, driving a KBM truck equipped with a Spectra Premium Radiator and having lucky fans living a special behind-the-scenes experience feels really unique.”
