    Danica Patrick on her final Indy 500, The Players' Tribune, May 15th 2018

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.
