• It was a tough day – really disappointing... I guess it was a good day in reality.

    Josef Newgarden on finishing 7th at the IMS Road Course, July 4th 2020

    John Barnes on Sam Hornish Jr, indy 2003

  • I'm a moving chicane out here!

    Juan Pablo Montoya, lap 42 at St Pete's, March 30th 2014

  • I drove the best race of my whole career!

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

  • Most importantly, for the Indy 500 we'll probably be all okay, and that's cause to be happy.

    Mikhail Aleshin on Honda's prospects for the 2017 season, Motorsport.com, February 2nd 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 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

  • I'm 19 years old, I drive Indy cars... I'm happy.

    Marco Andretti, July 2006

  • That was for the team.

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

  • She's just feeling the pressure of not winning races.

    Dan Wheldon on Danica Patrick, Milwaukee 2007

  • 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!

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

  • It's a living, breathing, organism.

    Eddie Cheever on Indianapolis Motor Speedway

  • With photos, sometimes people get old. Not me, but some people do.

    Helio Castroneves, June 2009

  • The minute he got in front of me, he slowed down half-a-second a lap because he knows I'm fighting him for the championship and he was out of the race. It's probably the most unsportsmanlike thing I've ever seen on the racetrack, apart from shunting someone into a wall.

    Wade Cunningham on Sebastien Saavedra, Iowa 2009

  • I'm throwing this one out to Dan. This is his hometown, this is his car.

  • That's a good way to lose a championship.

    Tony Kanaan, Kansas 2007

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