    Dan Wheldon, Homestead test 2007

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

    Graham Rahal on the Kentucky 300, August 2009

  • Good morning from the start/finish line at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

    Tom Carnegie

  • 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

  • I can hardly believe it. Who would have thought it?!

    Dario Franchitti on winning the 91st Indy 500

  • If we're not racing hard, we're not racing.

    Dan Wheldon on Iowa Speedway, June 2009
