  • I WILL win at Kentucky.

    Will Power, Chicago 2010

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

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

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

    Tony Kanaan, May 2007

    Tom Sneva

  • Why do you think there are so many skid marks? It's not because it's a lovely corner.

    John Andretti, Indy 2010

  • 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.
