If we're racing on Superspeedways with catch fencing, I fear we're just playing the odds until we have something protecting our heads. It’s a scary thing to say.
Ryan Hunter-Reay on canopies, Racer Magazine, 15 September 2014
If you run around in the back with the squirrels, you're bound to get your nuts cracked.
No way. That's the best part about our cars, no power steering, high aero, get it done.
Scott McLaughlin on adding power steering, via Twitter, April 26th 2021
I was going good but then I slipped in my own drool.
Helio Castroneves on the return to road courses
Good news is we've won every race we've finished!
James Hinchcliffe on crashing out at Long Beach, April 22nd 2013
I am stupid.
Zach Veach on Zach Veach after an off track excursion, IMS, July 4th 2020
That was for the team.
Tony Kanaan, Fontana 2005
...one of the things that has always been wrong with that theory that NASCAR is the enemy... and they are... is because the people at NASCAR need to protect NASCAR.
Curt Cavin on Trackside, May 13th 2010
If I ever pit with her again, I'm not racing for this team anymore - ever!
Tony Kanaan, Kansas 2007
This is just an excellent race and to be a part of the history, I'm really grateful for that.
Roger Yasukawa, Indy 2007
Gentlemen, start your engines.
I lifted a little, but I didn't touch the brake.
Will Power on the art of restarting, St Pete's, March 30th 2014
I'm just so f***ing disappointed!
Kosuke Matsuura, St Pete's 2007
Having a pulse should make you want to attend the 500.
James Hinchcliffe on what should make you want to attend the 500, via Twitter, April 2012
So it was a bad result but good day. Led laps, good restarts, passed people, worked with the car, but finished crap! movin on!!

The wall came too close and too quickly.
Fernando Alonso after crashing in practice, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 15th 2019
I miss my fans so much, you have no idea. I think I appreciate them more then I ever did.
Sarah Fisher, August 2006
When you go home and you're slow, there's nothing you can do. But when you go home under these conditions it's kind of tough.
Alex Tagliani, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009
We'd love to see Buddy Rice in a car and in the Indy 500, but as best we can tell, no driver has ever qualified for the Indy 500 from their couch.
TrackSideOnline, May 2009
It was talent and skill, that's how I did it. A masterful display of driving ability!
James Hinchcliffe on getting through the gap that took him from 17th to 6th at Mid Ohio, August 2014
I know a lot of people say that Iowa is in the middle of nowhere, but you know what, we get such a great crowd and they're so enthusiastic. As a driver you could put me in paradise, but if there's nobody in the grandstands then it's not good racing.
Dan Wheldon on Iowa Speedway, June 2009
Going into Texas with four wheels on the car is pretty exciting!
Sarah Fisher after the 2009 Indianapolis 500
You don't pay me to run second.
Dan Wheldon to Chip Ganassi, Nashville 2006
I arrived in Turn 1 and I was convinced that I was doing flat out, but the foot was not flat - it had its own life, it was not connected to my brain at that moment.
Fernando Alonso on Turn 1 commitment at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 3rd 2017
It's just great, pure racing.
Sebastien Bourdais on IndyCar, June 2015
It was a very good test in terms of outright speed, but I did destroy a car the first day.
Dan Wheldon, Homestead test 2007
Finishing in the Top-10 here was because of nutrition.

James Hinchcliffe on bumping at Indy, May 19th 2018
And in 7 hours off to NYC!! Can't believe. Don't want to sleep thinking I'm gonna wake up from a dream.
Sebastian Saavedra, Indy Bump Day 2010, via Twitter
You know, bison do seem like some very American animals.
Conor Daly on Bison, IndyCar.com March 23rd 2021
This place isn't easy. It's not supposed to be easy. This place starts the 33 fastest, best-prepared cars. Obviously, I missed.
Paul Diatlovitch, Indy Bump Day 2007
You won't believe it!
I wish Beaux Barfield was officiating when I was driving - I'd have gotten a lot less penalties!
Paul Tracy on lax penalties for avoidable contact, Long Beach 2014
If he wins this race with what he has to work with, they ought to name this place after him.
John Barnes on Sam Hornish Jr, indy 2003
I think Danica's pretty aggressive in our cars. I mean, you know especially if you catch her at the right time of the month, she might be trading plenty of paint out there!
Ed Carpenter, July 2006
I promise you this: it isn't the last you've seen of me at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. My last time there will not be a day when I'm walking out with my tail between my legs.
Paul Tracy, Indy Bump Day 2010
Pounding down toward the yard of bricks...
Not bad for a part timer ;o)
Graham Rahal on finishing 5th at Toronto, via Twitter, July 2010
There is nothing like winning the Indianapolis 500 and fortunately I was able to do so.
Eddie Cheever Jr.
If I have to race until I am 86 years old, I am going to race until I win another Indianapolis 500.
Dan Wheldon after finishing 2nd in the 2010 Indianapolis 500
NASCAR has nothing on us. Look at the crowd at Indy – that's three Daytona 500s all in one place.
Graham Rahal on the Indianapolis 500, Racer.com, June 4th 2016
Heeeeeee's on it!
The race that made the IRL famous!
Eddie Gossage on the Bombardier Lear Jet 500, May 2009
Racing IndyCars at Richmond is like flying fighter jets in a gymnasium.
Eddie Cheever Jr.
You don't gotta win by five seconds - you just gotta win.
Tony Kanaan, Motegi 2007
Howard and me set the first and third fastest times of the day, and we both got beaten to grid slot 33 by a kid in Methodist Hospital with a smoking wreck of a car. The magic of Indy, huh?
Paul Tracy, Indy Bump Day 2010
Gentlemen... restart your engines!
Tom Carnegie, Indy 2004
My mom hasn't played much of a role in my racing career. In fact, I think she still wants me to join the Coast Guard. But I still love her.
PJ Chesson on Mothers Day
My Father said if you are going to win one race, make sure it is the Indianapolis 500
