• I think it's is a long putt, so I think we're safe for a while.

    Roger Penske on the possibility of F1 returning to Long Beach, April 2014

  • It's amazing how different an Indycar is from anything else on a racetrack.

    Alexander Rossi, Autosport.com, April 26th 2017

  • The wall came too close and too quickly.

    Fernando Alonso after crashing in practice, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 15th 2019

  • We'll be fine. I'll take them to Six Flags tomorrow and we'll all be fine.

    Tony Kanaan on Marco & Danica, June 2009 at Texas Motor Speedway

  • Since last fall I've been wondering what in the hell it's going to feel like, and now I know.

    Danica Patrick on driving an IndyCar after 7 years away, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 1st 2018

  • 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.

    Marco Andretti, Kansas 2007

  • I was going through there as hard as I could. It was for everything. It was for all the marbles.

    Sam Hornish Jr, Indy 2006

  • I wish Beaux Barfield was officiating when I was driving - I'd have gotten a lot less penalties!

    Paul Tracy on lax penalties for avoidable contact, Long Beach 2014

  • It's just great, pure racing.

    Sebastien Bourdais on IndyCar, June 2015

  • The Indy 500 is the biggest race in the world. I don't think it's even debatable. It is.

    Dan Wheldon

  • Obviously we always see the good days, but Gil de Ferran told me if you can have a bad day and nobody notices, that's how you do a really good job - and that's how you win a championship.

    Simon Pagenaud on the 2016 season, ESPN.com, September 18th 2016

  • If I ever pit with her again, I'm not racing for this team anymore - ever!

    Tony Kanaan, Kansas 2007

  • It's a great feeling. I wouldn't trade it for anything else.

    Sam Hornish Jr. on winning the 90th Indy 500

  • This place isn't easy. It's not supposed to be easy. This place starts the 33 fastest, best-prepared cars. Obviously, I missed.

    Paul Diatlovitch, Indy Bump Day 2007

  • Whatever you heard, somebody made it up. For the first two days, he talked nonsense because he had a concussion. It doesn't matter what he was saying. He doesn't even remember it.

    Tony Kanaan on the rumours of Dario Franchitti's retirement after Houston, 2013

  • 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

  • This is a huge day for the IndyCar Series and for our sport as a whole, for sure.

    Michael Andretti, February 22nd 2008

  • Milka, if you're gonna go that slow you gotta drive your mirrors, hon'!

    Ryan Hunter-Reay to Milka Duno after Watkins Glen qualifying, July 2010

  • I hope all the fans out there were as excited about that race as I am. It was awesome doing so much passing. Racing can't get any better!

    Graham Rahal on the Kentucky 300, August 2009

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

    Buddy Lazier on the Indy 500

  • Some people strap on their helmet and lose their brains.

    Graham Rahal on the carnage at Toronto, July 2011

  • I need a nap now.

    Colton Herta on winning his first IndyCar race, COTA, 24th March 2019

  • It takes a lot of guts to expose yourself in front of millions of people, in front of all the media, in front of all your peers. If somebody came to me and said, "Hey, you want to run Texas in an IRL car," I'd say, "Hell, no. I don't want to get embarrassed." She's doing that. I have a lot of respect for that.

    Jeff Burton on Danica Patrick, June 2010

  • A happy wife is a happy life!

    Scott Dixon on marriage at the Carb Night Burger Bash, 2015

  • 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

  • Everyone remembers the pole winner for two weeks. Everyone remembers the race winner for life.

    Dan Wheldon on the Indy 500

  • I'm tired of being nice about it. The fact is, grip created by aerodynamic downforce is our enemy... At the moment, the downforce is so great that it masks the handling and hurts the racing

    Rick Mears on what's wrong with IndyCar, Motorsport.com, October 28th 2015

  • I get one more opportunity to head into the defining racing venue of my career with a single, achievable goal: Win.

    Danica Patrick on her final Indy 500, The Players' Tribune, May 15th 2018

  • It was talent and skill, that's how I did it. A masterful display of driving ability!

    James Hinchcliffe on getting through the gap that took him from 17th to 6th at Mid Ohio, August 2014

  • It felt way better than I ever thought it was going to feel!

    Ed Carpenter on finally winning his first race, Kansas, October 2011

  • Without the IRL, a lot of guys would never have been able to show what they can do.

    Tony Stewart, May 2007

  • It's a new... track... record!

    Tom Carnegie

  • 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 think Briscoe and I had a pretty good race going on, but we got what we got.

    Scott Dixon on losing the race and the championship, Homestead 2009

  • Good news is we've won every race we've finished!

    James Hinchcliffe on crashing out at Long Beach, April 22nd 2013

  • Now it's obvious we were too conservative, we should have just gone for it

    Eric Bachelart, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

  • When you go home and you're slow, there's nothing you can do. But when you go home under these conditions it's kind of tough.

    Alex Tagliani, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

  • 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

  • I can't believe I'm here. It's so cool!

    Mike Conway in victory lane, Long Beach 2014

  • 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

  • I arrived in Turn 1 and I was convinced that I was doing flat out, but the foot was not flat - it had its own life, it was not connected to my brain at that moment.

    Fernando Alonso on Turn 1 commitment at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 3rd 2017

  • Antony! Yer losin' 3 seconds a lap! Now get yer foot into it, I'm not gonna tell ya again!!

    AJ Foyt, Chicagoland 2004

  • She's just feeling the pressure of not winning races.

    Dan Wheldon on Danica Patrick, Milwaukee 2007

  • Last season, we lost the championship in the last corner of the last lap of the last race to some other guy.

    Chip Ganassi, Daytona 2008

  • I think the IRL has been poised for a long time to be discovered by a lot of people.

    Chip Ganassi

  • With photos, sometimes people get old. Not me, but some people do.

    Helio Castroneves, June 2009

  • The day started when I walked into Gasoline Alley and saw the grandstands. It was my first time here on race day and it was quite unbelievable.

    Alex Tagliani on the 2009 Indianapolis 500

  • We'll see how it unfolds, and we're going to have to give each other respect and the space on the track.

    Danica Patrick on Dan Wheldon, June 2007

  • Gentlemen, start your engines.

    Wilbur Shaw

  • 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
