    Johnny Rutherford's advice to Indy 500 rookies

  • I'm tired of being nice about it. The fact is, grip created by aerodynamic downforce is our enemy... At the moment, the downforce is so great that it masks the handling and hurts the racing

    Rick Mears on what's wrong with IndyCar, Motorsport.com, October 28th 2015

  • If we're not racing hard, we're not racing.

  • Cheever had a problem with my dad, he had a problem with me, and now he's taking it out on Marco.

    Michael Andretti, Watkins Glen 2006

  • If he wins this race with what he has to work with, they ought to name this place after him.

    Alex Tagliani, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

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