  • It's just great, pure racing.

    Sebastien Bourdais on IndyCar, June 2015

  • Do you think I give a flying f*** what Buddy Rice thinks?

    Dan Wheldon

  • I WILL win at Kentucky.

    Will Power, Chicago 2010

  • 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

    Paul Tracy on lax penalties for avoidable contact, Long Beach 2014

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