Tagliani pays off wager with beaver-suit stunts

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — IndyCar driver Alex Tagliani has made good on a bet he lost to fellow driver Scott Dixon by wearing a beaver costume while riding a tricycle and milking a cow at the Indiana State Fair.

Tagliani’s stint as a clown on Monday happened because Dixon managed to raise $1,130 more than he did for charities through an initiative called Power of 2. Together, the two racers raised more than $13,000.

Tagliani also tried unsuccessfully to ring the bell at the “Strong Man” game on the midway and had photos taken with the fair’s “world’s largest male hog” and the “world’s largest popcorn ball.”

Tagliani, still wearing the beaver suit, prevailed over Dixon when the two raced go-karts for five laps on a quarter-mile banked oval track.
