    Sage Karam on everyone wanting to pick a fight with him, IndyStar.com, August 3rd 2015

  • 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.

    PJ Chesson on Mothers Day

  • Heeeeere's something that's amazing... i-dent-ical laps.

    Tom Carnegie

  • I was going through there as hard as I could. It was for everything. It was for all the marbles.
