    Robbie Buhl, after winning at WDW in 2000

  • You need to learn how to f***ing count.

    Arie Luyendyk, Texas '97

  • 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

  • Having raced all over the planet, I would say that IndyCar is the toughest beast yet to master for me.

    Felix Rosenqvist, Motorsports.com, September 17th 2019

  • 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

    James Hinchcliffe on Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Bump Day, May 19th 2018

  • When Will was going off on Versus, I was cracking up. I was like, man, I didn't know you could talk like that! And I never knew you could say 'wanker' on TV, but that's my new word for now on... so I guess something good did come out of Toronto!

    Tony Kanaan on Will Power, Toronto, July 2011

  • We are unified.

    Terry Angstadt, February 22nd 2008

  • I am a connoisseur of information!

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

  • If you're an open-wheel racer and not at Indy in May, you're not really a race car driver. You just think you are.

    Eddie Cheever

  • I'm a moving chicane out here!

    Juan Pablo Montoya, lap 42 at St Pete's, March 30th 2014

  • For a moment, all is right with the world - Danica Patrick is leading the Indianapolis 500.

    Adam Alexander, Indy 2005

  • If he wins this race with what he has to work with, they ought to name this place after him.

    John Barnes on Sam Hornish Jr, indy 2003

  • My picture isn't everywhere, but people recognize me. I'm telling you, it's the nose.

    Danica Patrick, June 2005

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

    Dan Wheldon

    Paul Tracy on AJ Foyt, May 2009

  • You don't get too many times like that at the Indy 500 where you're out there and you have a chance to win the race right in front of everybody on the last lap.

    Sam Hornish Jr, Indy 2006

  • 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

  • Again, I was scared to death. I had zero grip, and I was lifting at the start/finish line going into one. It's embarrassing.

    Al Unser Jr.

  • You won't believe it!

    Tom Carnegie

  • The things that play on your mind the most are the ones that just got away.

    Buddy Lazier on the Indy 500

  • If we're not racing hard, we're not racing.

    Tony Kanaan, St Pete's 2007

  • We'd love to see Buddy Rice in a car and in the Indy 500, but as best we can tell, no driver has ever qualified for the Indy 500 from their couch.

    TrackSideOnline, May 2009

  • Second place is nothing.

    Marco Andretti, Indy 2006

  • It's a living, breathing, organism.

    Eddie Cheever on Indianapolis Motor Speedway

  • It's a new... track... record!

    Tom Carnegie

  • 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.
