    Marco Andretti on why the Honda teams were struggling, Barber, April 27th 2015

    Graham Rahal on the Kentucky 300, August 2009

  • 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
