• They're creating a much bigger problem than the one they're trying to solve. And it's mind-boggling, absolutely mind-boggling, that they don't see it and that these discussions have even made it this far.

    James Hinchcliffe on INDYCAR mandating domed skids, Motorsport.com, April 5th 2016

    Graham Rahal on winning at Mid-Ohio, Instagram, August 3rd 2015

    Paul Tracy, Indy Bump Day 2010

  • Sometimes you're the windshield, and sometimes you're the bug. And sometimes you have an air gun failure.

    Tony Kanaan on Marco & Danica, June 2009 at Texas Motor Speedway

  • I think Briscoe and I had a pretty good race going on, but we got what we got.

    Dan Wheldon after finishing 2nd in the 2010 Indianapolis 500

  • I drove it like I stole it!

    Helio Castroneves, St Pete's 2006

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

  • I'm just so f***ing disappointed!

    Kosuke Matsuura, St Pete's 2007

  • A happy wife is a happy life!

    Scott Dixon on marriage at the Carb Night Burger Bash, 2015

  • Racing IndyCars at Richmond is like flying fighter jets in a gymnasium.

    Eddie Cheever Jr.

  • The only reason I'm wearin' it is so I didn't leave it in no hotel nowhere!

  • Will he get through? Where is he? Where is he? There he is!

    Tom Carnegie on A.J. Foyt, 1967

  • 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

  • If someone said choose one race to win, just one, and that was the only race you ever got to win, it would be the Indy 500.

    Rinus VeeKay on finishing 5th at the IMS Road Course, July 4th 2020

    James Hinchcliffe after his first career victory, St. Petersburg, March 24th 2013

  • 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

  • I keep getting asked by Europeans, drivers also, if racing around IMS was boring an' easy. I just want to shake my head and walk away.

    Tony Kanaan, St Pete's 2007

  • The minute he got in front of me, he slowed down half-a-second a lap because he knows I'm fighting him for the championship and he was out of the race. It's probably the most unsportsmanlike thing I've ever seen on the racetrack, apart from shunting someone into a wall.
