LEXINGTON, Ohio — Luca Filippi will make his IndyCar debut when he drives the No. 98 car for Barracuda Racing on Sunday in the Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio

The 27-year-old Italian earned the ride after a successful test at the 2.258-mile road course on Wednesday. Filippi previously drove in both the GP2 and the Auto GP series.

Filippi replaces Alex Tagliani, who was 21st in points through 13 races and recorded two top-10 finishes.

Barracuda Racing co-owner Bryan Herta said he was pleased with how quickly Filippi adapted to the new car during the test session. Filippi said his goal is to be competitive but isn't worried about whether the weekend will lead to more rides this season.

Filippi recorded the fifth fastest time in Friday's second practice session at Mid-Ohio.
