• The Indy 500 was the defining stage of my career.

    Mario Andretti

  • And in 7 hours off to NYC!! Can't believe. Don't want to sleep thinking I'm gonna wake up from a dream.

    Sebastian Saavedra, Indy Bump Day 2010, via Twitter

  • I can't believe I'm here. It's so cool!

    Mike Conway in victory lane, Long Beach 2014

  • The only reason I'm wearin' it is so I didn't leave it in no hotel nowhere!

    A.J. Foyt on his Indy 500 winner's ring, Detroit, June 3rd 2016

  • ...one of the things that has always been wrong with that theory that NASCAR is the enemy... and they are... is because the people at NASCAR need to protect NASCAR.

    Curt Cavin on Trackside, May 13th 2010

  • If I ever pit with her again, I'm not racing for this team anymore - ever!

    Tony Kanaan, Kansas 2007

  • I WILL win at Kentucky.

    Will Power, Chicago 2010

  • I have learned more in one week here than I did in my entire Formula One career.

    Jean Alesi, Bump Day, Indy 2012

  • Pounding down toward the yard of bricks...

    Tom Carnegie

  • When I saw he was slowing down, I have to say it was a relief. I thought, 'Now we can finally unleash the beast inside and go for the win.'

    Simon Pagenaud on Will Power's misfortune at Sonoma, ESPN.com, September 18th 2016

  • I think it's is a long putt, so I think we're safe for a while.

    Roger Penske on the possibility of F1 returning to Long Beach, April 2014

  • We'll see how it unfolds, and we're going to have to give each other respect and the space on the track.

    Danica Patrick on Dan Wheldon, June 2007

  • I'm just so f***ing disappointed!

    Kosuke Matsuura, St Pete's 2007

  • Time to go to the back row party!

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

  • It's always sad to be out of a race but I'm happy that I walked away; it was a nasty, nasty crash.

    Tony Kanaan at the 2009 Indianapolis 500

  • 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.

    A.J. Foyt on qualifying for his first Indianapolis 500 mile race

  • Who is the buff guy in blue with the big #Schnozolla?

    Chip Ganassi on Tony Kanaan's Family Feud appearance, via Twitter, July 26th 2016

  • 3-horse chase. Power, Dixie and GR

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

  • It takes a lot of guts to expose yourself in front of millions of people, in front of all the media, in front of all your peers. If somebody came to me and said, "Hey, you want to run Texas in an IRL car," I'd say, "Hell, no. I don't want to get embarrassed." She's doing that. I have a lot of respect for that.

    Jeff Burton on Danica Patrick, June 2010

    Danica Patrick after Iowa 2009, via Twitter

    Mario Andretti on Andy Granatelli after the 1969 Indianapolis 500

  • I can't believe it. I cannot believe it. What a year for this Target team. It was so much fun to be a part of.

    Dario Franchitti, Homestead 2009

  • I'd have finished my career very disappointed had I not won the Indy 500. It's an amazing feeling and an amazing event.

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

  • It's just great, pure racing.

    Sebastien Bourdais on IndyCar, June 2015

  • And here comes Max Crappis into the pits!

    Paul Page, Michigan '99

  • Off to heat yoga with @PitFitTraining. Gonna be sweating like a rapist.

    Tomas Scheckter showing his class on Twitter, April 6th 2011

  • What a day. This place is magical. It is still the 'beginning of the season' for me but everything is starting to fall into place. This is the best month of May, ever.

    Helio Castroneves after winning the Indy 500, May 2009

  • I arrived in Turn 1 and I was convinced that I was doing flat out, but the foot was not flat - it had its own life, it was not connected to my brain at that moment.

    Fernando Alonso on Turn 1 commitment at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 3rd 2017

  • 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

  • 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

  • The things that play on your mind the most are the ones that just got away.

    Buddy Lazier on the Indy 500

  • I just kept focused, focused, focused, all day long, getting every corner perfect.

    Helio Castroneves, St Pete's 2007

  • Hope you're all snug in your beds, while Indycars dance in your head...

    Simon Pagenaud on insomnia, Twitter, 4:31 AM, July 23rd 2019

  • Downforce is the enemy of racing.

    Rick Mears, Motorsport.com, September 15th 2016

  • As a past driver, I'd answer the phone if Roger or Chip called...

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

  • The worst thing about crashing A.J.'s car twice in two days is you still have to go to dinner with him. And he makes you buy, and then he eats your bowl of ice cream, too.

    Billy Boat

  • Any time I get to come to Indianapolis, any time I get to participate in the greatest spectacle in motor racing, it's a great day.

    Paul Diatlovitch, Indy Bump Day 2007

  • That was the hairiest day I've ever had.

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

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

    James Hinchcliffe on Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Bump Day, May 19th 2018

  • It's just crazy. If I never won another pole, I wouldn't care. Almost.

    James Hinchcliffe on winning the pole for the 100th Indy 500, May 22nd 2016

  • 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

    Chip Ganassi on Honda, St Petersberg, March 23rd 2013

  • I've seen this place be absolutely great to me, and I've seen it wrench my heart from my body.

    Dan Wheldon on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway

  • My picture isn't everywhere, but people recognize me. I'm telling you, it's the nose.

    Tony Kanaan, May 2007

  • The walls are white, the track is grey, the grass is green, and the sky is blue... your job is to keep them all where they belong.

    Johnny Rutherford's advice to Indy 500 rookies

  • It's going to be a close finish. I have the bigger nose, I guess I have a good chance.

    Tony Kanaan, Kansas 2005

  • It's a living, breathing, organism.

    Eddie Cheever on Indianapolis Motor Speedway

  • Gentlemen... restart your engines!

    Tom Carnegie, Indy 2004

  • I was frustrated since Motegi and wanted to prove a point. When you're in a competitive package, you can't let points slip. I can eat breakfast tomorrow morning now instead of stabbing my fork into the table.

    Dan Wheldon, Kansas 2007

  • If you're an open-wheel racer and not at Indy in May, you're not really a race car driver. You just think you are.

    Eddie Cheever
