    James Hinchcliffe on winning the pole for the 100th Indy 500, May 22nd 2016

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

    Tony Kanaan, Motegi 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.

    Marco Andretti, Kansas 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?

    Dan Wheldon on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway

  • 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.
