    A.J. Foyt on qualifying for his first Indianapolis 500 mile race

    Danica Patrick on her final race, racing.ap.org, March 7th 2018

  • Broke a glass at a restaurant. Apologize to the waiter, he looks at me, says "Accidents happen. YOU know what I mean!"

    James Hinchcliffe via Twitter, December 17th 2015

    Arie Luyendyk, Texas '97

  • When I saw he was slowing down, I have to say it was a relief. I thought, 'Now we can finally unleash the beast inside and go for the win.'

  • Do you still remember how to celebrate these things?!

    Tim Cindric on the radio to Will Power, Detroit, 5th June 2016
