  • I am stupid.

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

  • I remember the first year I raced here, I took pictures of the entrance. I was taking pictures. I hoped one day to race here in May.

    Fernando Alonso on Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 3rd 2017

  • My mom hasn't played much of a role in my racing career. In fact, I think she still wants me to join the Coast Guard. But I still love her.

    PJ Chesson on Mothers Day

  • I'm 38. I'm a legit 38. I don't know how old you are, but I'm legit 38. March 3 1981.

    Ed Carpenter to Tony Kanaan on the suggestion that he was over 40, Gateway, August 24th 2019

  • I'm a little rough around the edges like him and I say what I feel, there's no B.S. and that's one of the things I've always admired about him.

    Paul Tracy on AJ Foyt, May 2009

  • The walls are white, the track is grey, the grass is green, and the sky is blue... your job is to keep them all where they belong.

    Johnny Rutherford's advice to Indy 500 rookies

  • NASCAR has nothing on us. Look at the crowd at Indy – that's three Daytona 500s all in one place.

    Graham Rahal on the Indianapolis 500, Racer.com, June 4th 2016

  • I'm just so f***ing disappointed!

    Kosuke Matsuura, St Pete's 2007

  • I hope all the fans out there were as excited about that race as I am. It was awesome doing so much passing. Racing can't get any better!

    Graham Rahal on the Kentucky 300, August 2009

  • I just kept focused, focused, focused, all day long, getting every corner perfect.

    Helio Castroneves, St Pete's 2007

  • I drove the best race of my whole career!

    Rinus VeeKay on finishing 5th at the IMS Road Course, July 4th 2020

  • I can't believe it. I cannot believe it. What a year for this Target team. It was so much fun to be a part of.

    Dario Franchitti, Homestead 2009

  • We are trying to fix them but when you start behind the eight ball like last year you are playing catch-up and you will continue to play catch-up until we get rid of these stupid kits!

    Michael Andretti on aerokits, Autosport.com, 15th April 2016

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

    Sam Hornish Jr. on winning the 90th Indy 500

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.

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

    Tony Kanaan, Motegi 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

  • I lifted a little, but I didn't touch the brake.

    Will Power on the art of restarting, St Pete's, March 30th 2014

  • If we're racing on Superspeedways with catch fencing, I fear we're just playing the odds until we have something protecting our heads. It’s a scary thing to say.

    Ryan Hunter-Reay on canopies, Racer Magazine, 15 September 2014

  • It's great that it's one minute after six!

    Marty Roth, Indy Bump Day 2007

  • It looks so easy when you watch it on TV, but it's not.

    Franck Perera on racing ovals, Homestead 2008

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

    Alexander Rossi on building an IndyCar legacy, Mobil1TheGrid.com, December 10th 2018

  • 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

  • I love this championship and everything it represents. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to be here. I wouldn't want to have it any other way.

    Alexander Rossi on IndyCar, The Indy Star, September 14th 2018

  • And here comes Max Crappis into the pits!

    Paul Page, Michigan '99

  • I miss my fans so much, you have no idea. I think I appreciate them more then I ever did.

    Sarah Fisher, August 2006

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

    Chip Ganassi

  • I told him I'd follow him anywhere he went, as long as it was on the racetrack.

    Sam Hornish Jr on Tomas Scheckter, Texas 2005

  • I'd have finished my career very disappointed had I not won the Indy 500. It's an amazing feeling and an amazing event.

    Will Power on winning the 102nd Indy 500, racer.com, August 7th 2018

  • When Will was going off on Versus, I was cracking up. I was like, man, I didn't know you could talk like that! And I never knew you could say 'wanker' on TV, but that's my new word for now on... so I guess something good did come out of Toronto!

    Tony Kanaan on Will Power, Toronto, July 2011

  • My Father said if you are going to win one race, make sure it is the Indianapolis 500

    Eddie Cheever after winning the Indy 500

  • 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
