• Let's wait and watch.

    Tom Carnegie

  • I keep getting asked by Europeans, drivers also, if racing around IMS was boring an' easy. I just want to shake my head and walk away.

    Connor Daly, June 6th 2013, via Twitter

  • I kind of have half an idea of what it means to win this race now. I couldn't be happier.

    Dario Franchitti on winning the 91st Indy 500

    Danica Patrick after Iowa 2009, via Twitter

  • 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

  • There is nothing like winning the Indianapolis 500 and fortunately I was able to do so.

    Eddie Cheever Jr.

  • 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.

    Ryan Hunter-Reay on canopies, Racer Magazine, 15 September 2014

  • There's fathers out there. There's husbands. There's brothers, sisters. It's something that absolutely we think about. We hope for the best with it.

    Ryan Hunter-Reay on the dangers of racing an IndyCar, Pocono, August 23rd 2015

  • Now they've got competition and they are not talking about winning. I feel like they want to sit around and hold hands and sing. I want to win.

    Chip Ganassi on Honda, St Petersberg, March 23rd 2013

  • I can hardly believe it. Who would have thought it?!

    Dario Franchitti on winning the 91st Indy 500

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

  • I still have the passion to drive the hell out of it!

    Juan Pablo Montoya on his motivation, NBCSports.com, July 12th 2016

  • 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.

    Dan Wheldon on Iowa Speedway, June 2009

  • I was frustrated since Motegi and wanted to prove a point. When you're in a competitive package, you can't let points slip. I can eat breakfast tomorrow morning now instead of stabbing my fork into the table.

    Dan Wheldon, Kansas 2007

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

  • NASCAR has nothing on us. Look at the crowd at Indy – that's three Daytona 500s all in one place.

    Graham Rahal on the Indianapolis 500, Racer.com, June 4th 2016

  • We won a 500-mile race - not the right one, but we won a 500-miler...

    Will Power on the 2016 season, ESPN.com, September 18th 2016

  • Winning is always a great feeling, but winning at your home track, a place that you grew up at and a place that helped you fall in love with the sport of IndyCar racing... this is priceless.

    Graham Rahal on winning at Mid-Ohio, Instagram, August 3rd 2015

  • I think Danica's pretty aggressive in our cars. I mean, you know especially if you catch her at the right time of the month, she might be trading plenty of paint out there!

    Ed Carpenter, July 2006

  • I didn't leave. I was terminated.

    Sebastien Bourdais on the flip side of the Coyne, NBCSports.com, November 22nd 2019

  • I was going good but then I slipped in my own drool.

    Helio Castroneves on the return to road courses

  • To finish first you must first finish.

  • I have learned more in one week here than I did in my entire Formula One career.

    Jean Alesi, Bump Day, Indy 2012

    Fernando Alonso on the Indy 500, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 19th 2019

  • It's going to be a close finish. I have the bigger nose, I guess I have a good chance.

    Tony Kanaan, Kansas 2005

  • I'm 19 years old, I drive Indy cars... I'm happy.

    Marco Andretti, July 2006

  • 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.

    Marco Andretti on an unidentified teammate after Milwaukee 2009

  • I drove the best race of my whole career!

    Rinus VeeKay on finishing 5th at the IMS Road Course, July 4th 2020

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

    Kevin Lee on Jacques Villeneuve, Trackside, August 2012

  • I think the IRL has been poised for a long time to be discovered by a lot of people.

    Chip Ganassi

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

    Eddie Cheever Jr.

  • Some of the drivers who don't want to do the Indy 500, they just have small balls. I think that's the only explanation.

    Mikhail Aleshin on drivers who are too scared to run the Indy 500, May 16th 2017
