• It was so scary for me. I don't know what else to say. I don't know what happened but it felt like my front and rear wings were upside down.

    Marco Andretti, Kansas 2007

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

    Chip Ganassi

  • It was a tough day – really disappointing... I guess it was a good day in reality.

    Josef Newgarden on finishing 7th at the IMS Road Course, July 4th 2020

  • If I have to race until I am 86 years old, I am going to race until I win another Indianapolis 500.

    Dan Wheldon after finishing 2nd in the 2010 Indianapolis 500

  • ...one of the things that has always been wrong with that theory that NASCAR is the enemy... and they are... is because the people at NASCAR need to protect NASCAR.

    Curt Cavin on Trackside, May 13th 2010

  • The track is narrower than I thought! You watch the television and you see three cars alongside on the main straight - now I am in the car on the main straight and it's hard to imagine how you can fit three cars there at speed.

    Fernando Alonso after his first test at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 3rd 2017

  • It's just crazy. If I never won another pole, I wouldn't care. Almost.

    James Hinchcliffe on winning the pole for the 100th Indy 500, May 22nd 2016

  • 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.

    Ryan Hunter-Reay on the dangers of racing an IndyCar, Pocono, August 23rd 2015

  • Time to go to the back row party!

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

  • ...if everyone agrees on a spec kit, IndyCar needs to really use the chance to get something that looks good, doesn't have all this winglet crap stuck all over it, and doesn't create all this dirty air.

    Will Power on aerokits, motorsport.com, May 4th 2016

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

    Dan Wheldon

  • I am a connoisseur of information!

    Conor Daly on silly season rumours, Trackside, September 13th 2016

  • I can tell you one thing, with 50 to go, I thought we were going to go home and close our tent.

    Roger Penske, Indy 2006

  • The minute he got in front of me, he slowed down half-a-second a lap because he knows I'm fighting him for the championship and he was out of the race. It's probably the most unsportsmanlike thing I've ever seen on the racetrack, apart from shunting someone into a wall.

    Wade Cunningham on Sebastien Saavedra, Iowa 2009

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

    John Andretti, Indy 2010

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

    Sarah Fisher after the 2009 Indianapolis 500

  • Broke a glass at a restaurant. Apologize to the waiter, he looks at me, says "Accidents happen. YOU know what I mean!"

    James Hinchcliffe via Twitter, December 17th 2015

  • That's the kind of incident that leaves skidmarks *inside* the cockpit!

    Tom Sneva

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

    Tom Carnegie

  • It was a very good test in terms of outright speed, but I did destroy a car the first day.

    Dan Wheldon, Homestead test 2007

  • I WILL win at Kentucky.

    Will Power, Chicago 2010

  • I prefer to be here, even 34th, then being at home like last year.

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

  • I remember the first year I raced here, I took pictures of the entrance. I was taking pictures. I hoped one day to race here in May.

    Fernando Alonso on Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 3rd 2017

  • I'm 19 years old, I drive Indy cars... I'm happy.

    Marco Andretti, July 2006

  • Everyone thinks that running in dirty air causes the front end to wash out, but actually it affects the whole car and you just can't follow someone close in fast or medium-speed corners since the aerokits came in.

    Will Power on aerokits, Motorsport.com, May 4th 2016

  • When Will was going off on Versus, I was cracking up. I was like, man, I didn't know you could talk like that! And I never knew you could say 'wanker' on TV, but that's my new word for now on... so I guess something good did come out of Toronto!

    Tony Kanaan on Will Power, Toronto, July 2011

  • Whoever has got the big balls is going to go fast!

    Helio Castroneves

  • The Indianapolis 500 is about the fastest 33 Indy car drivers going for one prize. If they happen to come from America, that's great.

    Tony Stewart, May 2007

  • Patience is a virtue... and someone wasn't very virtuous today.

    James Hinchcliffe on an unnamed driver, Long Beach 2014

  • I think this is something that will really change the complexion of the sport for a long time to come, so this is big

    Jay Frye on the Aeroscreen, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, October 2nd 2019

  • I was going good but then I slipped in my own drool.

    Helio Castroneves on the return to road courses

  • He's grounded.

    Bryan Herta to Marco Andretti on Colton Herta knocking Marco out of P1 in final practice, Long Beach, April 14th 2019

  • I told him I'd follow him anywhere he went, as long as it was on the racetrack.

    Sam Hornish Jr on Tomas Scheckter, Texas 2005

  • 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

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

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

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

    Graham Rahal on the carnage at Toronto, July 2011

  • There comes a time in a race where money doesn't matter, living doesn't matter. Winning is the only thing that matters, and so when you go into those corners, it's winning that tells all.

    Al Unser Jr.

  • I didn't leave. I was terminated.

    Sebastien Bourdais on the flip side of the Coyne, NBCSports.com, November 22nd 2019

  • Do you still remember how to celebrate these things?!

    Tim Cindric on the radio to Will Power, Detroit, 5th June 2016

  • 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

  • Finishing in the Top-10 here was because of nutrition.

    A Sarah Fisher malapropism, Texas 2007

  • This has been the best season of my career in motorsport and I've learned so much. We'll be coming back to win this thing next year.

    Will Power on losing to Dario Franchitti, Homestead, 2010

  • My mom hasn't played much of a role in my racing career. In fact, I think she still wants me to join the Coast Guard. But I still love her.

    PJ Chesson on Mothers Day

  • 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

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

    AJ Foyt, Chicagoland 2004

  • I don't know him at all. Is he in his own little world?

    Kevin Lee on Jacques Villeneuve, Trackside, August 2012

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

    Dan Wheldon on the Indy 500

  • 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

  • The worst thing about crashing A.J.'s car twice in two days is you still have to go to dinner with him. And he makes you buy, and then he eats your bowl of ice cream, too.

    Billy Boat

  • I bet you'd love to drive one, you just wouldn't want to crash one!

    Charlie Kimball to Dale Jr. via Twitter, Pocono, August 23rd 2015
