    James Hinchcliffe on an unnamed driver, Long Beach 2014

    Tony Stewart, May 2007

  • I was frustrated since Motegi and wanted to prove a point. When you're in a competitive package, you can't let points slip. I can eat breakfast tomorrow morning now instead of stabbing my fork into the table.

    Dan Wheldon, Kansas 2007

  • Downforce is the enemy of racing.

    Rick Mears, Motorsport.com, September 15th 2016

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

  • 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.

    A Sarah Fisher malapropism, Texas 2007

  • And here comes Max Crappis into the pits!

    Paul Page, Michigan '99

    Colton Herta on winning his first IndyCar race, COTA, 24th March 2019

    Dario Franchitti on winning the 91st Indy 500
