    Tony Stewart, May 2007

    Eddie Cheever

  • I lifted a little, but I didn't touch the brake.

    Will Power on the art of restarting, St Pete's, March 30th 2014

    Ed Carpenter after the 2009 Indianapolis 500

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

    Marty Roth, Indy Bump Day 2007
