    Dan Wheldon

  • F1 is for sissies, this is proper racing, you can quote me on that!

    Dan Wheldon

  • The minute he got in front of me, he slowed down half-a-second a lap because he knows I'm fighting him for the championship and he was out of the race. It's probably the most unsportsmanlike thing I've ever seen on the racetrack, apart from shunting someone into a wall.

  • Without the IRL, a lot of guys would never have been able to show what they can do.

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

  • I think Danica's pretty aggressive in our cars. I mean, you know especially if you catch her at the right time of the month, she might be trading plenty of paint out there!

  • Pounding down toward the yard of bricks...

    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

  • It was talent and skill, that's how I did it. A masterful display of driving ability!

    Danica Patrick, June 2005

  • Last season, we lost the championship in the last corner of the last lap of the last race to some other guy.

    Chip Ganassi, Daytona 2008
