    Helio Castroneves, June 2009

  • 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

    Curt Cavin on Trackside, May 13th 2010

    Helio Castroneves on the return to road courses

  • 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

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

    Franck Perera on racing ovals, Homestead 2008

  • That was for the team.

    Tony Kanaan, Fontana 2005

  • If he thinks I'm not going to remember that, HE'S CRAZY!

    Sam Hornish Jr, Indy 2006

  • I can't believe I'm here. It's so cool!

    Mike Conway in victory lane, Long Beach 2014

    Tony Kanaan, Detroit 2007

  • Do you still remember how to celebrate these things?!

    Tim Cindric on the radio to Will Power, Detroit, 5th June 2016

    Danica Patrick after Iowa 2009, via Twitter

  • Second place is nothing.

    Marco Andretti, Indy 2006

    Fernando Alonso on the Indy 500, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 19th 2019

  • Do you think I give a flying f*** what Buddy Rice thinks?

    Dan Wheldon

  • Will he get through? Where is he? Where is he? There he is!

    Tom Carnegie on A.J. Foyt, 1967

  • 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.

    Alexander Rossi, Autosport.com, April 26th 2017

  • 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

  • I just can't wait to get back in the car. I wonder if I'm still any good.

    Marcus Ericsson on The Indianapolis 500, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 2023

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

    Dan Wheldon after finishing 2nd in the 2010 Indianapolis 500

  • The last time this flag was on the front row of the Indy500, I wasn’t born. Makes me proud.

    Rinus Veekay on the Dutch flag, Twitter.com, May 25th 2021

  • 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. If somebody came to me and said, "Hey, you want to run Texas in an IRL car," I'd say, "Hell, no. I don't want to get embarrassed." She's doing that. I have a lot of respect for that.

  • It felt way better than I ever thought it was going to feel!

    Ed Carpenter on finally winning his first race, Kansas, October 2011

  • This place isn't easy. It's not supposed to be easy. This place starts the 33 fastest, best-prepared cars. Obviously, I missed.

    Paul Diatlovitch, Indy Bump Day 2007

  • Last season, we lost the championship in the last corner of the last lap of the last race to some other guy.

    Chip Ganassi, Daytona 2008

  • At 220mph friendship, risk and victory become extremely volatile.
