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

    Dan Wheldon

  • We'd love to see Buddy Rice in a car and in the Indy 500, but as best we can tell, no driver has ever qualified for the Indy 500 from their couch.

    TrackSideOnline, May 2009

  • Last season, we lost the championship in the last corner of the last lap of the last race to some other guy.

    Chip Ganassi, Daytona 2008

  • From now on, Scheckter, when used as a verb, means, "To steal one's wireless internet access."

    Tony Kanaan's blog, May 2007

  • So it was a bad result but good day. Led laps, good restarts, passed people, worked with the car, but finished crap! movin on!!

    Danica Patrick after Iowa 2009, via Twitter

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

  • It's a living, breathing, organism.

    Helio Castroneves after winning the Indy 500, May 2009

    Michael Andretti, Watkins Glen 2006

  • I've got the Grandfathers Club with Helio and Juan, right?!

    Roger Penske on his older two drivers, motorsport.com, March 22nd 2016

    Dario Franchitti, Homestead 2009

  • I miss my fans so much, you have no idea. I think I appreciate them more then I ever did.

    Sarah Fisher, August 2006

  • It's a Top-10 but after finishing here fifth last year nothing less than that would really be satisfying because you always want more.

    Mario Andretti on Andy Granatelli after the 1969 Indianapolis 500
