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

  • 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.

    TrackSideOnline, May 2009

    Simon Pagenaud on the 2016 season, ESPN.com, September 18th 2016

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

    Dan Wheldon

  • 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.

    Eddie Cheever

  • He's grounded.

    Bryan Herta to Marco Andretti on Colton Herta knocking Marco out of P1 in final practice, Long Beach, April 14th 2019

    John Barnes on Sam Hornish Jr, indy 2003

    Tom Carnegie
