    Simon Pagenaud on the 2016 season, ESPN.com, September 18th 2016

  • 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

  • Downforce is the enemy of racing.

    Rick Mears, Motorsport.com, September 15th 2016

    Roger Yasukawa, Indy 2007

  • Some of the drivers who don't want to do the Indy 500, they just have small balls. I think that's the only explanation.

    Mikhail Aleshin on drivers who are too scared to run the Indy 500, May 16th 2017

    Paul Tracy, Indy Bump Day 2010

  • 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.

    Marco Andretti, Kansas 2007

    Sebastian Saavedra, Indy Bump Day 2010, via Twitter
