    Conor Daly on silly season rumours, Trackside, September 13th 2016

    Chip Ganassi on whether he'd allow Jaun Pablo Montoya to test for Penske, Houston, October 2013

  • At 220mph friendship, risk and victory become extremely volatile.

    Dan Wheldon

  • That's the kind of incident that leaves skidmarks *inside* the cockpit!

    James Hinchcliffe on what should make you want to attend the 500, via Twitter, April 2012

    Will Power on winning the 102nd Indy 500, racer.com, August 7th 2018

  • For a moment, all is right with the world - Danica Patrick is leading the Indianapolis 500.

    Adam Alexander, Indy 2005

  • Time to go to the back row party!

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

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

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

    Simon Pagenaud on the 2016 season, ESPN.com, September 18th 2016

  • I mean this guy can't even keep his lies straight. He's told so many in the last week, he's not sure what the truth is.

    Robin Miller on Kevin Kalkoven, February 2008

  • Pounding down toward the yard of bricks...

    Tom Carnegie

  • If I have to race until I am 86 years old, I am going to race until I win another Indianapolis 500.

    Dan Wheldon after finishing 2nd in the 2010 Indianapolis 500

  • Now it's obvious we were too conservative, we should have just gone for it

    Eric Bachelart, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

  • 3-horse chase. Power, Dixie and GR

    Curt Cavin with a new twist on an old saying, GP of Baltimore 2013

    Sam Schmidt on Chevy's advantage with domed skids, Racer.com, April 7th 2016

  • A happy wife is a happy life!

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

  • I can't control what size I am and how I'm built. All I know is the NBA doesn't lower the hoop for short guys.

    Danica Patrick, June 2005

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

    Dan Wheldon to Chip Ganassi, Nashville 2006

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

    Graham Rahal on the Indianapolis 500, Racer.com, June 4th 2016

    Sarah Fisher on keeping Josef Newgarden in her team, Racer.com, August 3rd 2015
