    Dan Wheldon

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

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

    Tony Kanaan, Kansas 2005

  • I need a nap now.

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

    Danica Patrick on driving an IndyCar after 7 years away, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 1st 2018

  • James Hinchcliffe on bumping at Indy, May 19th 2018

    Ed Carpenter, July 2006

  • Well, the elephant in the room is the aero kits.

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

    Chip Ganassi

  • 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.
