    Eddie Cheever

  • The Indy 500 was the defining stage of my career.

    Mario Andretti

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

    Ryan Hunter-Reay to Milka Duno after Watkins Glen qualifying, July 2010

  • ...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.

  • We are unified.

    Terry Angstadt, February 22nd 2008

  • I am stupid.

    Zach Veach on Zach Veach after an off track excursion, IMS, July 4th 2020

  • That was for the team.

    Tony Kanaan, Fontana 2005

  • 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.

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

    Marco Andretti, July 2006

    Tony Stewart, May 2007

  • We're all back to square zero!

    James Hinchcliffe on the start of a new season, Trackside, March 18th 2014

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

  • I lifted a little, but I didn't touch the brake.

    Will Power on the art of restarting, St Pete's, March 30th 2014

  • Again, I was scared to death. I had zero grip, and I was lifting at the start/finish line going into one. It's embarrassing.

    Marco Andretti, Kansas 2007

  • Most importantly, for the Indy 500 we'll probably be all okay, and that's cause to be happy.

    Mikhail Aleshin on Honda's prospects for the 2017 season, Motorsport.com, February 2nd 2017

    Tony Kanaan on the rumours of Dario Franchitti's retirement after Houston, 2013

    Dan Wheldon, Kansas 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!

    Tony Kanaan on Will Power, Toronto, July 2011

    Alex Tagliani, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

  • Hope you're all snug in your beds, while Indycars dance in your head...

  • That's a good way to lose a championship.

    Tony Kanaan, Kansas 2007
