    Robbie Buhl, after winning at WDW in 2000

  • It's great that it's one minute after six!

    Marty Roth, Indy Bump Day 2007

  • 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

    Justin Wilson on Brian Clauson's patchwork DW12, bump day, Indy 2012

  • I never would've had my opportunity to race at Indy if it weren't for Tony George and the IRL.

    Tony Stewart, May 2007

  • It's like a reunion to come back here every May. I've never retired. I always say, "I'm not done yet."

    Parnelli Jones, Indy 2007

  • ...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

  • I'm a little rough around the edges like him and I say what I feel, there's no B.S. and that's one of the things I've always admired about him.

    Paul Tracy on AJ Foyt, May 2009

    Eddie Gossage on the Bombardier Lear Jet 500, May 2009

  • It's a new... track... record!

    Tom Carnegie

  • 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

  • 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

    James Hinchcliffe on what should make you want to attend the 500, via Twitter, April 2012

    Danica Patrick on Dan Wheldon, Milwaukee 2007

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

    Tony Stewart, May 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

  • F1 is for sissies, this is proper racing, you can quote me on that!

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

  • 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

  • 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

    Tony Kanaan, Fontana 2005

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

    Dan Wheldon

    Simon Pagenaud, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 15th 2018

    Tom Sneva

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

    Alexander Rossi on IndyCar, The Indy Star, September 14th 2018

  • 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.
