    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

  • Why do you think there are so many skid marks? It's not because it's a lovely corner.

    Tony Kanaan, Fontana 2005

  • When Will was going off on Versus, I was cracking up. I was like, man, I didn't know you could talk like that! And I never knew you could say 'wanker' on TV, but that's my new word for now on... so I guess something good did come out of Toronto!

    Tony Kanaan on Will Power, Toronto, July 2011
