• If they want to be on the front page of USA Today, they can be my guest. If I ever want attention, I'm just going to get out of the car and beat the hell out of somebody.

    Tony Kanaan on Dan and Danica, Milwaukee 2007

  • It was talent and skill, that's how I did it. A masterful display of driving ability!

    James Hinchcliffe on getting through the gap that took him from 17th to 6th at Mid Ohio, August 2014

  • Helio lives for this. This is his passion. He loves Indy.

    Simon Pagenaud, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 15th 2018

  • I hope all the fans out there were as excited about that race as I am. It was awesome doing so much passing. Racing can't get any better!

    Graham Rahal on the Kentucky 300, August 2009

  • Sometimes you're the windshield, and sometimes you're the bug. And sometimes you have an air gun failure.

    Simon Pagenaud on equipment issues, St Petersburg, March 11th 2018

  • I was going good but then I slipped in my own drool.

    Helio Castroneves on the return to road courses

  • This is and always will be the greatest spectacle in racing. This is the Indianapolis 500.

    Leigh Diffey, as the green flag waved at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 29th 2022

  • The things that play on your mind the most are the ones that just got away.

    Buddy Lazier on the Indy 500

  • This place isn't easy. It's not supposed to be easy. This place starts the 33 fastest, best-prepared cars. Obviously, I missed.

    Paul Diatlovitch, Indy Bump Day 2007

  • I love this championship and everything it represents. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to be here. I wouldn't want to have it any other way.

    Alexander Rossi on IndyCar, The Indy Star, September 14th 2018

  • It was so scary for me. I don't know what else to say. I don't know what happened but it felt like my front and rear wings were upside down.

    Marco Andretti, Kansas 2007

  • 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

  • This track, believe it or not, has done worse to me in the past, and we came back swinging.

    James Hinchcliffe on Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Bump Day, May 19th 2018

  • Without the IRL, a lot of guys would never have been able to show what they can do.

    Tony Stewart, May 2007

  • I've never been so happy to be in last place.

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

  • 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. If somebody came to me and said, "Hey, you want to run Texas in an IRL car," I'd say, "Hell, no. I don't want to get embarrassed." She's doing that. I have a lot of respect for that.

    Jeff Burton on Danica Patrick, June 2010

  • I didn't leave. I was terminated.

    Sebastien Bourdais on the flip side of the Coyne, NBCSports.com, November 22nd 2019

  • I'm tired of being nice about it. The fact is, grip created by aerodynamic downforce is our enemy... At the moment, the downforce is so great that it masks the handling and hurts the racing

    Rick Mears on what's wrong with IndyCar, Motorsport.com, October 28th 2015

  • It's going to be a close finish. I have the bigger nose, I guess I have a good chance.

    Tony Kanaan, Kansas 2005

  • We're all back to square zero!

    James Hinchcliffe on the start of a new season, Trackside, March 18th 2014

  • I arrived in Turn 1 and I was convinced that I was doing flat out, but the foot was not flat - it had its own life, it was not connected to my brain at that moment.

    Fernando Alonso on Turn 1 commitment at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 3rd 2017

  • I don't know him at all. Is he in his own little world?

    Kevin Lee on Jacques Villeneuve, Trackside, August 2012

  • The only reason I'm wearin' it is so I didn't leave it in no hotel nowhere!

    A.J. Foyt on his Indy 500 winner's ring, Detroit, June 3rd 2016

  • From now on, Scheckter, when used as a verb, means, "To steal one's wireless internet access."

    Tony Kanaan's blog, May 2007

  • Will he get through? Where is he? Where is he? There he is!

    Tom Carnegie on A.J. Foyt, 1967

  • It's always sad to be out of a race but I'm happy that I walked away; it was a nasty, nasty crash.

    Tony Kanaan at the 2009 Indianapolis 500

  • We are unified.

    Terry Angstadt, February 22nd 2008

  • I'd have finished my career very disappointed had I not won the Indy 500. It's an amazing feeling and an amazing event.

    Will Power on winning the 102nd Indy 500, racer.com, August 7th 2018

  • They're creating a much bigger problem than the one they're trying to solve. And it's mind-boggling, absolutely mind-boggling, that they don't see it and that these discussions have even made it this far.

    James Hinchcliffe on INDYCAR mandating domed skids, Motorsport.com, April 5th 2016

  • I'm the happiest guy on earth right now!

    Rinus VeeKay on finishing 5th at the IMS Road Course, July 4th 2020

  • Not bad for a part timer ;o)

    Graham Rahal on finishing 5th at Toronto, via Twitter, July 2010

  • I can tell you one thing, with 50 to go, I thought we were going to go home and close our tent.

    Roger Penske, Indy 2006

  • Most importantly, for the Indy 500 we'll probably be all okay, and that's cause to be happy.

    Mikhail Aleshin on Honda's prospects for the 2017 season, Motorsport.com, February 2nd 2017

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

    Marty Roth, Indy Bump Day 2007

  • I wasn't thinking, 'That's Eddie [Cheever] and he's in an Infiniti and so I need to beat him.' I was thinking, 'That's Eddie, and I want to kick his ass!'

    Robbie Buhl, after winning at WDW in 2000

  • If he thinks I'm not going to remember that, HE'S CRAZY!

    Danica Patrick on Dan Wheldon, Milwaukee 2007

  • Racing IndyCars at Richmond is like flying fighter jets in a gymnasium.

    Eddie Cheever Jr.

  • All up it was one of the toughest weekends of my career in ANY form of motorsport, and you can sometimes learn more from your roughest days out there.

    Scott McLaughlin on his Detroit weekend, June15th 2021, Speedcafe.com

    Romain Grosjean on his rookie season, Laguna Seca, September 19th 2021

  • Obviously we always see the good days, but Gil de Ferran told me if you can have a bad day and nobody notices, that's how you do a really good job - and that's how you win a championship.

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

  • When you've driven it for a day, you're going to feel naked without it.

    Will Power on testing the Aeroscreen, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, October 2nd 2019

  • When you go home and you're slow, there's nothing you can do. But when you go home under these conditions it's kind of tough.

    Alex Tagliani, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

  • Gentlemen, start your engines.

    Wilbur Shaw

  • She probably does not know what that is, so I can say I'm going to Las Vegas to play poker and she'll think it's something like that!

    Fernando Alonso on what his mother would think about the Indy 500, motor.as.com, April 20th 2016

  • The Indianapolis 500 is about the fastest 33 Indy car drivers going for one prize. If they happen to come from America, that's great.

  • I still have the passion to drive the hell out of it!
