    Simon Pagenaud on equipment issues, St Petersburg, March 11th 2018

  • 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.

    Sam Schmidt on Chevy's advantage with domed skids, Racer.com, April 7th 2016

    Graham Rahal on finishing 5th at Toronto, via Twitter, July 2010

    Marco Andretti, Kansas 2007

  • You won't believe it!

    Tom Carnegie

  • I am a connoisseur of information!

    Conor Daly on silly season rumours, Trackside, September 13th 2016

  • It's a new... track... record!

    Tom Carnegie

  • When I saw he was slowing down, I have to say it was a relief. I thought, 'Now we can finally unleash the beast inside and go for the win.'

    Simon Pagenaud on Will Power's misfortune at Sonoma, ESPN.com, September 18th 2016

  • The last I looked, I earned the label of Indy 500 champion; those lobbing unfounded accusations at me have not.
