    Dan Wheldon

  • I need a nap now.

    Colton Herta on winning his first IndyCar race, COTA, 24th March 2019

  • Obviously we always see the good days, but Gil de Ferran told me if you can have a bad day and nobody notices, that's how you do a really good job - and that's how you win a championship.

    Simon Pagenaud on the 2016 season, ESPN.com, September 18th 2016

  • I've got the Grandfathers Club with Helio and Juan, right?!

    Roger Penske on his older two drivers, motorsport.com, March 22nd 2016

  • 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

    Rick Mears on downforce, Motorsport.com, October 28th 2015

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

    Tom Carnegie on A.J. Foyt, 1967

  • I mean this guy can't even keep his lies straight. He's told so many in the last week, he's not sure what the truth is.

    Robin Miller on Kevin Kalkoven, February 2008

  • I was frustrated since Motegi and wanted to prove a point. When you're in a competitive package, you can't let points slip. I can eat breakfast tomorrow morning now instead of stabbing my fork into the table.

    Dan Wheldon, Kansas 2007

  • Rick Mears is a great race car driver. Hopefully I have plenty of years to try to earn his respect again.

    Tony Kanaan, Detroit 2007

  • You don't pay me to run second.

    Dan Wheldon to Chip Ganassi, Nashville 2006

  • Winning is always a great feeling, but winning at your home track, a place that you grew up at and a place that helped you fall in love with the sport of IndyCar racing... this is priceless.

    Graham Rahal on winning at Mid-Ohio, Instagram, August 3rd 2015

  • If I ever pit with her again, I'm not racing for this team anymore - ever!

    Tony Kanaan, Kansas 2007

  • ...if everyone agrees on a spec kit, IndyCar needs to really use the chance to get something that looks good, doesn't have all this winglet crap stuck all over it, and doesn't create all this dirty air.

    Will Power on aerokits, motorsport.com, May 4th 2016

  • Off to heat yoga with @PitFitTraining. Gonna be sweating like a rapist.

    Tomas Scheckter showing his class on Twitter, April 6th 2011

    Tony Kanaan, St Pete's 2007

  • This is just an excellent race and to be a part of the history, I'm really grateful for that.

    Roger Yasukawa, Indy 2007

  • I'm just so f***ing disappointed!

    Kosuke Matsuura, St Pete's 2007

  • From now on, Scheckter, when used as a verb, means, "To steal one's wireless internet access."

    Tony Kanaan's blog, May 2007

  • Without the IRL, a lot of guys would never have been able to show what they can do.

    Tony Stewart, May 2007

  • I WILL win at Kentucky.

    Will Power, Chicago 2010

  • 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

  • The track is narrower than I thought! You watch the television and you see three cars alongside on the main straight - now I am in the car on the main straight and it's hard to imagine how you can fit three cars there at speed.

    Fernando Alonso after his first test at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 3rd 2017

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

    Dan Wheldon on Danica Patrick, Milwaukee 2007

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

    James Hinchcliffe after his first career victory, St. Petersburg, March 24th 2013

  • I drove it like I stole it!

    Helio Castroneves, St Pete's 2006

  • 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

  • It's a living, breathing, organism.

    Eddie Cheever on Indianapolis Motor Speedway

  • I think it's is a long putt, so I think we're safe for a while.

    Roger Penske on the possibility of F1 returning to Long Beach, April 2014

  • All up it was one of the toughest weekends of my career in ANY form of motorsport, and you can sometimes learn more from your roughest days out there.

    Scott McLaughlin on his Detroit weekend, June15th 2021, Speedcafe.com

  • I know a lot of people say that Iowa is in the middle of nowhere, but you know what, we get such a great crowd and they're so enthusiastic. As a driver you could put me in paradise, but if there's nobody in the grandstands then it's not good racing.

    Dan Wheldon on Iowa Speedway, June 2009

  • Who is the buff guy in blue with the big #Schnozolla?

    Chip Ganassi on Tony Kanaan's Family Feud appearance, via Twitter, July 26th 2016

  • I can tell you one thing, with 50 to go, I thought we were going to go home and close our tent.

    Roger Penske, Indy 2006

  • Gentlemen... restart your engines!

    Tom Carnegie, Indy 2004

  • 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's always sad to be out of a race but I'm happy that I walked away; it was a nasty, nasty crash.

    Tony Kanaan at the 2009 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

  • 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

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

    Helio Castroneves, St Pete's 2007

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

    Tony Kanaan, Kansas 2007

  • I was going good but then I slipped in my own drool.

    Helio Castroneves on the return to road courses

  • She was acting like a spoiled brat. I don't respect that. I tried to step away. She kept grabbing on me like a dog that wanted to bite my ankles.

    Dan Wheldon on Danica Patrick, June 2007

  • I can hardly believe it. Who would have thought it?!

    Dario Franchitti on winning the 91st Indy 500

  • The wall came too close and too quickly.

    Fernando Alonso after crashing in practice, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 15th 2019

  • F1 is for sissies, this is proper racing, you can quote me on that!

    Dan Wheldon

  • 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

  • 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

  • Broke a glass at a restaurant. Apologize to the waiter, he looks at me, says "Accidents happen. YOU know what I mean!"

    James Hinchcliffe via Twitter, December 17th 2015

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