• I don't know him at all. Is he in his own little world?

    Kevin Lee on Jacques Villeneuve, Trackside, August 2012

  • 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 WILL win at Kentucky.

    Will Power, Chicago 2010

  • 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 need a nap now.

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

  • I plan to be here hopefully until I'm into my 40s, and to accomplish something like Scott has done.

    Alexander Rossi on building an IndyCar legacy, Mobil1TheGrid.com, December 10th 2018

  • The Indy 500 was the defining stage of my career.

    Mario Andretti

  • 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

  • I don't want to take a defeatist attitude here but it's going to be ugly. If IndyCar goes the domed skid route, we're going to be taking a knife to a gunfight.

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

  • Finishing in the Top-10 here was because of nutrition.

    A Sarah Fisher malapropism, Texas 2007

  • I prefer to be here, even 34th, then being at home like last year.

    Fernando Alonso on the Indy 500, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 19th 2019

  • 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

  • At 220mph friendship, risk and victory become extremely volatile.

    Dan Wheldon

  • I'd have finished my career very disappointed had I not won the Indy 500. It's an amazing feeling and an amazing event.

    Will Power on winning the 102nd Indy 500, racer.com, August 7th 2018

  • This is a great decision by IndyCar. Plus it gives me another month to get ready.

    Jimmie Johnson on the 2021 season opener being delayed, via Twitter, January 6th 2021

  • I still have the passion to drive the hell out of it!

    Juan Pablo Montoya on his motivation, NBCSports.com, July 12th 2016

  • Everyone remembers the pole winner for two weeks. Everyone remembers the race winner for life.

    Dan Wheldon on the Indy 500

  • I am stupid.

    Zach Veach on Zach Veach after an off track excursion, IMS, July 4th 2020

  • I hope all the fans out there were as excited about that race as I am. It was awesome doing so much passing. Racing can't get any better!

    Graham Rahal on the Kentucky 300, August 2009

  • Sometimes you're the windshield, and sometimes you're the bug. And sometimes you have an air gun failure.

    Simon Pagenaud on equipment issues, St Petersburg, March 11th 2018

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

    Parnelli Jones, Indy 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.

    Wade Cunningham on Sebastien Saavedra, Iowa 2009

  • Any time I get to come to Indianapolis, any time I get to participate in the greatest spectacle in motor racing, it's a great day.

    Paul Diatlovitch, Indy Bump Day 2007

  • I've seen this place be absolutely great to me, and I've seen it wrench my heart from my body.

    Dan Wheldon on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway

  • It's a great feeling. I wouldn't trade it for anything else.

    Sam Hornish Jr. on winning the 90th Indy 500

  • Howard and me set the first and third fastest times of the day, and we both got beaten to grid slot 33 by a kid in Methodist Hospital with a smoking wreck of a car. The magic of Indy, huh?

    Paul Tracy, Indy Bump Day 2010

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

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

  • I am a connoisseur of information!

    Conor Daly on silly season rumours, Trackside, September 13th 2016

  • It was so scary for me. I don't know what else to say. I don't know what happened but it felt like my front and rear wings were upside down.

    Marco Andretti, Kansas 2007

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

    Helio Castroneves on the return to road courses

  • He said its the best team out there. If its the best team, he shouldn't have a problem.

    Chip Ganassi on whether he'd allow Jaun Pablo Montoya to test for Penske, Houston, October 2013

  • It takes a lot of guts to expose yourself in front of millions of people, in front of all the media, in front of all your peers. If somebody came to me and said, "Hey, you want to run Texas in an IRL car," I'd say, "Hell, no. I don't want to get embarrassed." She's doing that. I have a lot of respect for that.

    Jeff Burton on Danica Patrick, June 2010

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

    Helio Castroneves, St Pete's 2007

  • Some people strap on their helmet and lose their brains.

    Graham Rahal on the carnage at Toronto, July 2011

  • I'm just so f***ing disappointed!

    Kosuke Matsuura, St Pete's 2007

  • I didn't leave. I was terminated.

    Sebastien Bourdais on the flip side of the Coyne, NBCSports.com, November 22nd 2019

  • 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

  • I bet you'd love to drive one, you just wouldn't want to crash one!

    Charlie Kimball to Dale Jr. via Twitter, Pocono, August 23rd 2015

  • 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

  • It was a tough day – really disappointing... I guess it was a good day in reality.

    Josef Newgarden on finishing 7th at the IMS Road Course, July 4th 2020

  • The wall came too close and too quickly.

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

  • You don't get too many times like that at the Indy 500 where you're out there and you have a chance to win the race right in front of everybody on the last lap.

    Sam Hornish Jr, Indy 2006

  • I think Briscoe and I had a pretty good race going on, but we got what we got.

    Scott Dixon on losing the race and the championship, Homestead 2009

  • ...one of the things that has always been wrong with that theory that NASCAR is the enemy... and they are... is because the people at NASCAR need to protect NASCAR.

    Curt Cavin on Trackside, May 13th 2010

  • Second place is nothing.

    Marco Andretti, Indy 2006

  • We're all back to square zero!

    James Hinchcliffe on the start of a new season, Trackside, March 18th 2014

  • 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

  • Some of the drivers who don't want to do the Indy 500, they just have small balls. I think that's the only explanation.

    Mikhail Aleshin on drivers who are too scared to run the Indy 500, May 16th 2017

  • Now they've got competition and they are not talking about winning. I feel like they want to sit around and hold hands and sing. I want to win.

    Chip Ganassi on Honda, St Petersberg, March 23rd 2013

  • You've only seen me smile here.

    Romain Grosjean on being in IndyCar, after the GMR Grand Prix, IMS, May 15th 2021
