  • Let's wait and watch.

    Tom Carnegie

    Dario Franchitti on winning the 91st Indy 500

  • If I have to race until I am 86 years old, I am going to race until I win another Indianapolis 500.

    Dan Wheldon after finishing 2nd in the 2010 Indianapolis 500

  • We'll be fine. I'll take them to Six Flags tomorrow and we'll all be fine.

    Tony Kanaan on Marco & Danica, June 2009 at Texas Motor Speedway

    James Hinchcliffe on an unnamed driver, Long Beach 2014

  • Downforce is the enemy of racing.

    Rick Mears, Motorsport.com, September 15th 2016

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