    John Barnes on Sam Hornish Jr, indy 2003

  • Everyone thinks that running in dirty air causes the front end to wash out, but actually it affects the whole car and you just can't follow someone close in fast or medium-speed corners since the aerokits came in.

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

    Josef Newgarden on The Indy 500, June 2023, via Twitter

  • There comes a time in a race where money doesn't matter, living doesn't matter. Winning is the only thing that matters, and so when you go into those corners, it's winning that tells all.

    Al Unser Jr.

  • The last I looked, I earned the label of Indy 500 champion; those lobbing unfounded accusations at me have not.

    Kurt St. Angelo on the IndyCarFanZone fantasy league, Twitter, September 14th 2022
