• NASCAR has nothing on us. Look at the crowd at Indy – that's three Daytona 500s all in one place.

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

  • We are trying to fix them but when you start behind the eight ball like last year you are playing catch-up and you will continue to play catch-up until we get rid of these stupid kits!

    Tony Kanaan on Dan and Danica, Milwaukee 2007

  • This has been the best season of my career in motorsport and I've learned so much. We'll be coming back to win this thing next year.

    Rick Mears, Motorsport.com, September 15th 2016

    Danica Patrick after Iowa 2009, via Twitter

    Curt Cavin on Trackside, May 13th 2010

  • Helio lives for this. This is his passion. He loves Indy.

    Simon Pagenaud, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 15th 2018

  • I think the IRL has been poised for a long time to be discovered by a lot of people.

    Fernando Alonso on The Indy 500, The Players Tribune, May 18th 2017

  • 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.

    Jack Harvey on the Indianapolis 500, indianapolismotorspeedway.com, February 21st 2019

    Franck Perera on racing ovals, Homestead 2008

  • Back then there were 50-75 cars just trying to make the field. And they were the best drivers in the world. I remember thinking; I can’t believe this. I can't believe I got a spot.

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

    Sarah Fisher, August 2006

  • I need a nap now.

    Colton Herta on winning his first IndyCar race, COTA, 24th March 2019
