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

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

    Eddie Cheever Jr. after Watkins Glen 06

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

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

  • Gentlemen... restart your engines!

    Tom Carnegie, Indy 2004

    Alexander Rossi, Autosport.com, April 26th 2017

    Tony Kanaan on Will Power, Toronto, July 2011

  • 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

  • What makes IndyCar racing so good is there's not much you can do on your car to differentiate it from the others. It's only dampers, third springs. There's the aero with the aero kits – and hopefully those are going away.

    Bobby Rahal on the benefits of a spec series, Racer.com, May 18th 2016

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

  • I'm 38. I'm a legit 38. I don't know how old you are, but I'm legit 38. March 3 1981.
