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

    Eddie Cheever Jr.

  • The track is narrower than I thought! You watch the television and you see three cars alongside on the main straight - now I am in the car on the main straight and it's hard to imagine how you can fit three cars there at speed.

    Fernando Alonso after his first test at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 3rd 2017

  • The Indy 500 was the defining stage of my career.

    Mario Andretti

  • With photos, sometimes people get old. Not me, but some people do.

    Helio Castroneves, June 2009

  • Whoever has got the big balls is going to go fast!

    Helio Castroneves

  • Howard and me set the first and third fastest times of the day, and we both got beaten to grid slot 33 by a kid in Methodist Hospital with a smoking wreck of a car. The magic of Indy, huh?

    Paul Tracy, Indy Bump Day 2010

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

    Simon Pagenaud, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 15th 2018

    Tony Kanaan on Marco & Danica, June 2009 at Texas Motor Speedway

    Sarah Fisher, August 2006

  • F1 is for sissies, this is proper racing, you can quote me on that!

    Dan Wheldon

  • ...if everyone agrees on a spec kit, IndyCar needs to really use the chance to get something that looks good, doesn't have all this winglet crap stuck all over it, and doesn't create all this dirty air.

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

  • 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

  • To finish first you must first finish.

    Rick Mears

  • If we're racing on Superspeedways with catch fencing, I fear we're just playing the odds until we have something protecting our heads. It’s a scary thing to say.

  • I think Briscoe and I had a pretty good race going on, but we got what we got.

    Scott Dixon on losing the race and the championship, Homestead 2009

    Chip Ganassi, Daytona 2008

  • What makes IndyCar racing so good is there's not much you can do on your car to differentiate it from the others. It's only dampers, third springs. There's the aero with the aero kits – and hopefully those are going away.

    Bobby Rahal on the benefits of a spec series, Racer.com, May 18th 2016

  • The toughest people out there passing me are my teammates, and I don't get that. I think three of the four of us get what the camaraderie of Andretti Green Racing is.

  • Pounding down toward the yard of bricks...

    Tom Carnegie

    Robbie Buhl, after winning at WDW in 2000

  • Downforce is the enemy of racing.

    Rick Mears, Motorsport.com, September 15th 2016

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

    Kevin Lee on Jacques Villeneuve, Trackside, August 2012

  • 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

  • I bet you'd love to drive one, you just wouldn't want to crash one!

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

  • If someone said choose one race to win, just one, and that was the only race you ever got to win, it would be the Indy 500.

    Jack Harvey on the Indianapolis 500, indianapolismotorspeedway.com, February 21st 2019

  • 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

    Will Power on the long off season, St Petersburg, March 21st 2013

  • I told him I'd follow him anywhere he went, as long as it was on the racetrack.

    Sam Hornish Jr on Tomas Scheckter, Texas 2005

  • 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.

  • It's amazing how different an Indycar is from anything else on a racetrack.

    Alexander Rossi, Autosport.com, April 26th 2017
