    Marco Andretti, July 2006

  • 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.

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

  • I know a lot of people say that Iowa is in the middle of nowhere, but you know what, we get such a great crowd and they're so enthusiastic. As a driver you could put me in paradise, but if there's nobody in the grandstands then it's not good racing.

  • To finish first you must first finish.

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

  • That was for the team.

    Tony Kanaan, Fontana 2005

  • I don't want to take a defeatist attitude here but it's going to be ugly. If IndyCar goes the domed skid route, we're going to be taking a knife to a gunfight.
