    Ed Carpenter, July 2006

  • 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.

  • Finishing in the Top-10 here was because of nutrition.

    A Sarah Fisher malapropism, Texas 2007

  • You don't get too many times like that at the Indy 500 where you're out there and you have a chance to win the race right in front of everybody on the last lap.

    Sarah Fisher after the 2009 Indianapolis 500

  • When Will was going off on Versus, I was cracking up. I was like, man, I didn't know you could talk like that! And I never knew you could say 'wanker' on TV, but that's my new word for now on... so I guess something good did come out of Toronto!

    Tony Kanaan on Will Power, Toronto, July 2011

  • I can tell you one thing, with 50 to go, I thought we were going to go home and close our tent.

    Roger Penske, Indy 2006

  • That's a cool shot of the glowing brake disc!

    Colton Herta watching a replay of his pass on Rossi, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, 3rd October 2020

  • Gentlemen, start your engines.

    Wilbur Shaw

  • There comes a time in a race where money doesn't matter, living doesn't matter. Winning is the only thing that matters, and so when you go into those corners, it's winning that tells all.

    Al Unser Jr.

  • There is nothing like winning the Indianapolis 500 and fortunately I was able to do so.

    Eddie Cheever Jr.

    Marco Andretti, Kansas 2007

  • F1 is for sissies, this is proper racing, you can quote me on that!

    Dan Wheldon

  • I was frustrated since Motegi and wanted to prove a point. When you're in a competitive package, you can't let points slip. I can eat breakfast tomorrow morning now instead of stabbing my fork into the table.

    Dan Wheldon, Kansas 2007

  • This track, believe it or not, has done worse to me in the past, and we came back swinging.
