    Tom Carnegie

  • Whoever has got the big balls is going to go fast!

    Helio Castroneves

  • ...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.
