• Well, the elephant in the room is the aero kits.

    Marco Andretti on why the Honda teams were struggling, Barber, April 27th 2015

    Paul Diatlovitch, Indy Bump Day 2007

    Marco Andretti, Kansas 2007

  • ...if everyone agrees on a spec kit, IndyCar needs to really use the chance to get something that looks good, doesn't have all this winglet crap stuck all over it, and doesn't create all this dirty air.

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

    Will Power on the 2016 season, ESPN.com, September 18th 2016

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

  • I prefer to be here, even 34th, then being at home like last year.
