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

  • Downforce is the enemy of racing.

    Rick Mears, Motorsport.com, September 15th 2016

  • 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

  • Cheever had a problem with my dad, he had a problem with me, and now he's taking it out on Marco.

  • I'm a moving chicane out here!

    Juan Pablo Montoya, lap 42 at St Pete's, March 30th 2014

    Ed Carpenter, July 2006

  • She's just feeling the pressure of not winning races.

    Dan Wheldon on Danica Patrick, Milwaukee 2007

  • If he thinks I'm not going to remember that, HE'S CRAZY!

    Danica Patrick on Dan Wheldon, Milwaukee 2007

    TrackSideOnline, May 2009

  • To finish first you must first finish.

    Rick Mears

  • Time to go to the back row party!

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

  • 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

  • The walls are white, the track is grey, the grass is green, and the sky is blue... your job is to keep them all where they belong.

    Johnny Rutherford's advice to Indy 500 rookies

    Marco Andretti, July 2006

  • Pounding down toward the yard of bricks...

    Tom Carnegie

  • 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

  • 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!

    Tom Carnegie

  • I'm just so f***ing disappointed!

    Kosuke Matsuura, St Pete's 2007

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

    Helio Castroneves after winning the Indy 500, May 2009

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

    Chip Ganassi on Tony Kanaan's Family Feud appearance, via Twitter, July 26th 2016

  • 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

  • The last I looked, I earned the label of Indy 500 champion; those lobbing unfounded accusations at me have not.

    Eddie Cheever Jr. after Watkins Glen 06

  • I hope all the fans out there were as excited about that race as I am. It was awesome doing so much passing. Racing can't get any better!

  • When you go home and you're slow, there's nothing you can do. But when you go home under these conditions it's kind of tough.

  • Do you think I give a flying f*** what Buddy Rice thinks?

    Tony Kanaan, May 2007

  • I wasn't thinking, 'That's Eddie [Cheever] and he's in an Infiniti and so I need to beat him.' I was thinking, 'That's Eddie, and I want to kick his ass!'

  • When you've driven it for a day, you're going to feel naked without it.

    Roger Yasukawa, Indy 2007

  • 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

  • Andy Granatelli for as much as he put into the sport, especially at Indianapolis. I had to deal with that big kiss. I can still smell the garlic.

    Mario Andretti on Andy Granatelli after the 1969 Indianapolis 500

  • 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.

    Tomas Scheckter on Helio Castroneves, Detroit 2007

  • Second place is nothing.

    Marco Andretti, Indy 2006

    Dan Wheldon, Kansas 2007

  • I'd have finished my career very disappointed had I not won the Indy 500. It's an amazing feeling and an amazing event.
