    Dan Wheldon on Iowa Speedway, June 2009

    Paul Tracy on AJ Foyt, May 2009

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

    PJ Chesson on Mothers Day

  • Eyes on the starter...

    Tom Carnegie

  • 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.

  • If I have to race until I am 86 years old, I am going to race until I win another Indianapolis 500.

    Alex Tagliani, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

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

  • If you're an open-wheel racer and not at Indy in May, you're not really a race car driver. You just think you are.

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

    Eddie Cheever Jr.

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

    Helio Castroneves on the return to road courses

  • Maybe he should start thinking about driving and stop thinking about dancing because that was a stupid move.

    Tomas Scheckter on Helio Castroneves, Detroit 2007

  • Again, I was scared to death. I had zero grip, and I was lifting at the start/finish line going into one. It's embarrassing.

    Danica Patrick on driving an IndyCar after 7 years away, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 1st 2018

  • I'm tired of being nice about it. The fact is, grip created by aerodynamic downforce is our enemy... At the moment, the downforce is so great that it masks the handling and hurts the racing

    Rick Mears on what's wrong with IndyCar, Motorsport.com, October 28th 2015

  • I think Briscoe and I had a pretty good race going on, but we got what we got.

    Scott Dixon on losing the race and the championship, Homestead 2009
