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

    Chip Ganassi

  • Maybe he should start thinking about driving and stop thinking about dancing because that was a stupid move.

    Tomas Scheckter on Helio Castroneves, Detroit 2007

  • You don't get too many times like that at the Indy 500 where you're out there and you have a chance to win the race right in front of everybody on the last lap.

    Sam Hornish Jr, Indy 2006

  • This track, believe it or not, has done worse to me in the past, and we came back swinging.

    Robbie Buhl, after winning at WDW in 2000

  • When you go home and you're slow, there's nothing you can do. But when you go home under these conditions it's kind of tough.

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

    Eric Bachelart, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

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

    Paul Tracy on AJ Foyt, May 2009

  • There comes a time in a race where money doesn't matter, living doesn't matter. Winning is the only thing that matters, and so when you go into those corners, it's winning that tells all.

    Sage Karam on everyone wanting to pick a fight with him, IndyStar.com, August 3rd 2015

  • You won't believe it!

    Tom Carnegie

  • Some of the drivers who don't want to do the Indy 500, they just have small balls. I think that's the only explanation.

    Mikhail Aleshin on drivers who are too scared to run the Indy 500, May 16th 2017

  • What makes IndyCar racing so good is there's not much you can do on your car to differentiate it from the others. It's only dampers, third springs. There's the aero with the aero kits – and hopefully those are going away.
