    Tom Carnegie

  • If he wins this race with what he has to work with, they ought to name this place after him.

    John Barnes on Sam Hornish Jr, indy 2003

  • It's a Top-10 but after finishing here fifth last year nothing less than that would really be satisfying because you always want more.

    Ed Carpenter after the 2009 Indianapolis 500

  • Now it's obvious we were too conservative, we should have just gone for it

    Roger Yasukawa, Indy 2007

  • I keep getting asked by Europeans, drivers also, if racing around IMS was boring an' easy. I just want to shake my head and walk away.

    Connor Daly, June 6th 2013, via Twitter

  • 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.
