• I'm throwing this one out to Dan. This is his hometown, this is his car.

    James Hinchcliffe after his first career victory, St. Petersburg, March 24th 2013

  • I kind of have half an idea of what it means to win this race now. I couldn't be happier.

    Dario Franchitti on winning the 91st Indy 500

  • 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

  • Back then there were 50-75 cars just trying to make the field. And they were the best drivers in the world. I remember thinking; I can’t believe this. I can't believe I got a spot.

    A.J. Foyt on qualifying for his first Indianapolis 500 mile race

  • Someone asked me if I win the Indy 500 if I'd still retire? I'd still retire. What better way to go out?

    Danica Patrick on her final race, racing.ap.org, March 7th 2018

  • It takes a lot of guts to expose yourself in front of millions of people, in front of all the media, in front of all your peers. If somebody came to me and said, "Hey, you want to run Texas in an IRL car," I'd say, "Hell, no. I don't want to get embarrassed." She's doing that. I have a lot of respect for that.

    Jeff Burton on Danica Patrick, June 2010

  • Why do you think there are so many skid marks? It's not because it's a lovely corner.

    John Andretti, Indy 2010

  • She was acting like a spoiled brat. I don't respect that. I tried to step away. She kept grabbing on me like a dog that wanted to bite my ankles.

    Dan Wheldon on Danica Patrick, June 2007

  • I don't want to take a defeatist attitude here but it's going to be ugly. If IndyCar goes the domed skid route, we're going to be taking a knife to a gunfight.

    Sam Schmidt on Chevy's advantage with domed skids, Racer.com, April 7th 2016

  • It felt way better than I ever thought it was going to feel!

    Ed Carpenter on finally winning his first race, Kansas, October 2011

  • I mean this guy can't even keep his lies straight. He's told so many in the last week, he's not sure what the truth is.

    Robin Miller on Kevin Kalkoven, February 2008

  • I've never been so happy to be in last place.

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

  • Pounding down toward the yard of bricks...

    Tom Carnegie

  • 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.

    Sam Hornish Jr, Indy 2006

  • I don't know him at all. Is he in his own little world?

    Kevin Lee on Jacques Villeneuve, Trackside, August 2012

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

    Dan Wheldon

  • 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

  • He's grounded.

    Bryan Herta to Marco Andretti on Colton Herta knocking Marco out of P1 in final practice, Long Beach, April 14th 2019

  • 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 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

  • I think it's is a long putt, so I think we're safe for a while.

    Roger Penske on the possibility of F1 returning to Long Beach, April 2014

  • Andy Granatelli for as much as he put into the sport, especially at Indianapolis. I had to deal with that big kiss. I can still smell the garlic.

    Mario Andretti on Andy Granatelli after the 1969 Indianapolis 500

  • I am stupid.

    Zach Veach on Zach Veach after an off track excursion, IMS, July 4th 2020

  • Going into Texas with four wheels on the car is pretty exciting!

    Sarah Fisher after the 2009 Indianapolis 500

  • I'm a moving chicane out here!

    Juan Pablo Montoya, lap 42 at St Pete's, March 30th 2014

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

    Helio Castroneves on the return to road courses

  • Everyone wants to pick a fight with me. Whatever.

    Sage Karam on everyone wanting to pick a fight with him, IndyStar.com, August 3rd 2015

  • Good news is we've won every race we've finished!

    James Hinchcliffe on crashing out at Long Beach, April 22nd 2013

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

    Marco Andretti, July 2006

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

    Mario Andretti

  • If he thinks I'm not going to remember that, HE'S CRAZY!

    Danica Patrick on Dan Wheldon, Milwaukee 2007

  • This is a great decision by IndyCar. Plus it gives me another month to get ready.

    Jimmie Johnson on the 2021 season opener being delayed, via Twitter, January 6th 2021

  • They're creating a much bigger problem than the one they're trying to solve. And it's mind-boggling, absolutely mind-boggling, that they don't see it and that these discussions have even made it this far.

    James Hinchcliffe on INDYCAR mandating domed skids, Motorsport.com, April 5th 2016

  • He said its the best team out there. If its the best team, he shouldn't have a problem.

    Chip Ganassi on whether he'd allow Jaun Pablo Montoya to test for Penske, Houston, October 2013

  • When you tug at a guy in the pit lane, I think that is taking advantage of your gender, because it puts me in an awkward position.

    Dan Wheldon on Danica Patrick, June 2007

  • Gentlemen... restart your engines!

    Tom Carnegie, Indy 2004

  • To finish first you must first finish.

    Rick Mears

  • 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

  • Will he get through? Where is he? Where is he? There he is!

    Tom Carnegie on A.J. Foyt, 1967

  • If someone said choose one race to win, just one, and that was the only race you ever got to win, it would be the Indy 500.

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

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

    A Sarah Fisher malapropism, Texas 2007

  • When you've driven it for a day, you're going to feel naked without it.

    Will Power on testing the Aeroscreen, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, October 2nd 2019

  • 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 a Top-10 but after finishing here fifth last year nothing less than that would really be satisfying because you always want more.

    Ed Carpenter after the 2009 Indianapolis 500

  • Any time I get to come to Indianapolis, any time I get to participate in the greatest spectacle in motor racing, it's a great day.

    Paul Diatlovitch, Indy Bump Day 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

  • Heeeeeee's on it!

    Tom Carnegie

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

    Eddie Cheever Jr.

  • Off to heat yoga with @PitFitTraining. Gonna be sweating like a rapist.

    Tomas Scheckter showing his class on Twitter, April 6th 2011

  • There's fathers out there. There's husbands. There's brothers, sisters. It's something that absolutely we think about. We hope for the best with it.
