Elkhart Lake:

Canada's Alex Tagliani turned a bad weekend into the best day of his career with a gamble that paid off with the checkered flag at the Grand Prix of Road America on Sunday. Tagliani, who crashed in practice on Friday and didn't get to race in the first round of qualifying, passed Rodolfo Lavin four laps from the finish to secure his first career victory in 85 races. The win was even more impressive because Tagliani started in the 13th spot at Elkhart Lake. The 31-year-old Canadian, had finished second three times in his career, including at Elkhart Lake in 2002. Tagliani led here in 2000 with six laps to go when he was done in by a gearbox problem. (AP)
