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

    Danica Patrick after Iowa 2009, via Twitter

  • 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!

    Dan Wheldon on Iowa Speedway, June 2009
