• We won a 500-mile race - not the right one, but we won a 500-miler...

    Will Power on the 2016 season, ESPN.com, September 18th 2016

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

    Tony Stewart, May 2007

  • Winning is always a great feeling, but winning at your home track, a place that you grew up at and a place that helped you fall in love with the sport of IndyCar racing... this is priceless.

    Graham Rahal on winning at Mid-Ohio, Instagram, August 3rd 2015

    Helio Castroneves after winning the Indy 500, May 2009

    Adam Alexander, Indy 2005

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

    Graham Rahal on the carnage at Toronto, July 2011

  • 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

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

    Arie Luyendyk, Texas '97

  • 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

    Roger Penske on his older two drivers, motorsport.com, March 22nd 2016

  • I am stupid.

    Zach Veach on Zach Veach after an off track excursion, IMS, July 4th 2020

  • And in 7 hours off to NYC!! Can't believe. Don't want to sleep thinking I'm gonna wake up from a dream.

    Sebastian Saavedra, Indy Bump Day 2010, via Twitter

  • She probably does not know what that is, so I can say I'm going to Las Vegas to play poker and she'll think it's something like that!

    Fernando Alonso on what his mother would think about the Indy 500, motor.as.com, April 20th 2016

    Chip Ganassi on whether he'd allow Jaun Pablo Montoya to test for Penske, Houston, October 2013

    Graham Rahal on the Indianapolis 500, Racer.com, June 4th 2016

  • Who is the buff guy in blue with the big #Schnozolla?

  • It's a Top-10 but after finishing here fifth last year nothing less than that would really be satisfying because you always want more.

    Ed Carpenter after the 2009 Indianapolis 500

  • She was acting like a spoiled brat. I don't respect that. I tried to step away. She kept grabbing on me like a dog that wanted to bite my ankles.

    Dan Wheldon on Danica Patrick, June 2007

  • 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.

    Fernando Alonso on the Indy 500, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 19th 2019

    Chip Ganassi on Honda, St Petersberg, March 23rd 2013

  • Going into Texas with four wheels on the car is pretty exciting!

    Sarah Fisher after the 2009 Indianapolis 500

  • At 220mph friendship, risk and victory become extremely volatile.

    Dan Wheldon

  • 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
