    Mario Andretti on Andy Granatelli after the 1969 Indianapolis 500

    Fernando Alonso on The Indy 500, The Players Tribune, May 18th 2017

    Charlie Kimball to Dale Jr. via Twitter, Pocono, August 23rd 2015

  • 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.

    Tony Kanaan, Motegi 2007

  • The worst thing about crashing A.J.'s car twice in two days is you still have to go to dinner with him. And he makes you buy, and then he eats your bowl of ice cream, too.

    Billy Boat

  • I plan to be here hopefully until I'm into my 40s, and to accomplish something like Scott has done.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • It's a great feeling. I wouldn't trade it for anything else.

    Sam Hornish Jr. on winning the 90th Indy 500
