    Tony Kanaan on Marco & Danica, June 2009 at Texas Motor Speedway

  • At 220mph friendship, risk and victory become extremely volatile.

    Dan Wheldon

  • Heeeeere's something that's amazing... i-dent-ical laps.

    Tom Carnegie

  • Some of the drivers roll out this 'safety' word, and suddenly it ties everybody's hands. But those arguments make no sense anyway. Remove downforce and you actually improve safety

  • I'm 19 years old, I drive Indy cars... I'm happy.

    Marco Andretti, July 2006

    Jack Harvey on the Indianapolis 500, indianapolismotorspeedway.com, February 21st 2019

  • You don't gotta win by five seconds - you just gotta win.

    Tony Kanaan, Motegi 2007

  • The minute he got in front of me, he slowed down half-a-second a lap because he knows I'm fighting him for the championship and he was out of the race. It's probably the most unsportsmanlike thing I've ever seen on the racetrack, apart from shunting someone into a wall.

    Wade Cunningham on Sebastien Saavedra, Iowa 2009

  • That was for the team.

    Tony Kanaan, Fontana 2005

    PJ Chesson

  • I think the IRL has been poised for a long time to be discovered by a lot of people.

    Chip Ganassi

  • With photos, sometimes people get old. Not me, but some people do.

    Helio Castroneves, June 2009

  • She probably does not know what that is, so I can say I'm going to Las Vegas to play poker and she'll think it's something like that!

    Fernando Alonso on what his mother would think about the Indy 500, motor.as.com, April 20th 2016

  • Broke a glass at a restaurant. Apologize to the waiter, he looks at me, says "Accidents happen. YOU know what I mean!"

    James Hinchcliffe via Twitter, December 17th 2015

  • The Indy 500 was the defining stage of my career.

    Mario Andretti

  • I was going through there as hard as I could. It was for everything. It was for all the marbles.

  • The day started when I walked into Gasoline Alley and saw the grandstands. It was my first time here on race day and it was quite unbelievable.

  • What a day. This place is magical. It is still the 'beginning of the season' for me but everything is starting to fall into place. This is the best month of May, ever.

    Helio Castroneves after winning the Indy 500, May 2009

  • It's a living, breathing, organism.

    Eddie Cheever on Indianapolis Motor Speedway

  • I was going good but then I slipped in my own drool.

    Helio Castroneves on the return to road courses

  • 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

  • You know, if you're going to have an example of how not to go about things, this is 100 percent how you would do it.

    Tom Carnegie

  • It's amazing how different an Indycar is from anything else on a racetrack.

    Alexander Rossi, Autosport.com, April 26th 2017

  • 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

  • Wild thought. This 18th Indy 500 means I've been in IndyCar for exactly half of my life. 👀😅

    Marco Andretti on getting older, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 18th 2023, via Twitter

    Marcus Ericsson on The Indianapolis 500, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 2023
