  • The minute he got in front of me, he slowed down half-a-second a lap because he knows I'm fighting him for the championship and he was out of the race. It's probably the most unsportsmanlike thing I've ever seen on the racetrack, apart from shunting someone into a wall.

  • Downforce is the enemy of racing.

    Rick Mears, Motorsport.com, September 15th 2016

  • Hope you're all snug in your beds, while Indycars dance in your head...

    Simon Pagenaud on insomnia, Twitter, 4:31 AM, July 23rd 2019

    Tom Sneva

  • Finishing in the Top-10 here was because of nutrition.
