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

    Marty Roth, Indy Bump Day 2007

  • Pounding down toward the yard of bricks...

    Tom Carnegie

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

  • Then again my favorite films of all time are Fast and the Furious 1 through 8 or however many of them there are.

    Conor Daly on underglow. Via Twitter, July 16th 2020

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

  • Last season, we lost the championship in the last corner of the last lap of the last race to some other guy.

    Chip Ganassi, Daytona 2008

    Dan Wheldon after finishing 2nd in the 2010 Indianapolis 500

  • You know, if you're going to have an example of how not to go about things, this is 100 percent how you would do it.

  • Downforce is the enemy of racing.

    Rick Mears, Motorsport.com, September 15th 2016

    Dan Wheldon, Kansas 2007

  • Heeeeeee's on it!

    Tom Carnegie

    Dan Wheldon

  • I sometimes think that Graham doesn't have the right filter for this Sport!

    Curt Cavin on Graham Rahal speaking his mind, Traxkaide, May 23rd 2023

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

    Michael Andretti on aerokits, Autosport.com, 15th April 2016

    Curt Cavin with a new twist on an old saying, GP of Baltimore 2013

  • The race that made the IRL famous!

    Eddie Gossage on the Bombardier Lear Jet 500, May 2009

  • It's a living, breathing, organism.

    Eddie Cheever on Indianapolis Motor Speedway

  • What makes IndyCar racing so good is there's not much you can do on your car to differentiate it from the others. It's only dampers, third springs. There's the aero with the aero kits – and hopefully those are going away.

    Bobby Rahal on the benefits of a spec series, Racer.com, May 18th 2016

    Sebastien Bourdais on IndyCar, June 2015

  • 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'm the happiest guy on earth right now!

    Dan Wheldon

  • When you tug at a guy in the pit lane, I think that is taking advantage of your gender, because it puts me in an awkward position.

    Dan Wheldon on Danica Patrick, June 2007

  • 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.

    Roger Yasukawa, Indy 2007

  • If you're an open-wheel racer and not at Indy in May, you're not really a race car driver. You just think you are.

    Eddie Cheever

  • If he thinks I'm not going to remember that, HE'S CRAZY!

    Danica Patrick on Dan Wheldon, Milwaukee 2007

  • Speed on ovals is insane. Currently re-calibrating my eyes.

    Jimmie Johnson on his first oval test at Texas Motor Speedway, via Twitter, August 30th 2020

  • 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
