    Sam Schmidt on Chevy's advantage with domed skids, Racer.com, April 7th 2016

  • Whatever you heard, somebody made it up. For the first two days, he talked nonsense because he had a concussion. It doesn't matter what he was saying. He doesn't even remember it.

    Mike Conway in victory lane, Long Beach 2014

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

    Dan Wheldon

  • I can't control what size I am and how I'm built. All I know is the NBA doesn't lower the hoop for short guys.

    Danica Patrick, June 2005

  • Time to go to the back row party!

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

    Marco Andretti on getting older, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 18th 2023, via Twitter

  • It's like a reunion to come back here every May. I've never retired. I always say, "I'm not done yet."

  • Gentlemen, start your engines.

    Wilbur Shaw

    Alex Tagliani on the 2009 Indianapolis 500

  • It was a very good test in terms of outright speed, but I did destroy a car the first day.

    Dan Wheldon, Homestead test 2007

  • I think Danica's pretty aggressive in our cars. I mean, you know especially if you catch her at the right time of the month, she might be trading plenty of paint out there!

    Ed Carpenter, July 2006

  • I'm a moving chicane out here!

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

  • Antony! Yer losin' 3 seconds a lap! Now get yer foot into it, I'm not gonna tell ya again!!

    AJ Foyt, Chicagoland 2004
