    Marty Reid, Las Vegas, October 16th 2011

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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 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

  • I don't know him at all. Is he in his own little world?

    Kevin Lee on Jacques Villeneuve, Trackside, August 2012

  • It felt way better than I ever thought it was going to feel!

    Ed Carpenter on finally winning his first race, Kansas, October 2011

    Tony Kanaan, Detroit 2007

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

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

    Marco Andretti, Kansas 2007

  • You need to learn how to f***ing count.

    Arie Luyendyk, Texas '97

    Dan Wheldon after finishing 2nd in the 2010 Indianapolis 500

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

    Mario Andretti

    Paul Tracy, Indy Bump Day 2010

  • I don't want to take a defeatist attitude here but it's going to be ugly. If IndyCar goes the domed skid route, we're going to be taking a knife to a gunfight.

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

    Roger Penske, Indy 2006

  • Pounding down toward the yard of bricks...

    Tom Carnegie

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

  • I never would've had my opportunity to race at Indy if it weren't for Tony George and the IRL.

    Graham Rahal on winning at Mid-Ohio, Instagram, August 3rd 2015

  • It's like a reunion to come back here every May. I've never retired. I always say, "I'm not done yet."

    Parnelli Jones, Indy 2007

  • I WILL win at Kentucky.

    Will Power, Chicago 2010

  • Do you still remember how to celebrate these things?!

    Tim Cindric on the radio to Will Power, Detroit, 5th June 2016

  • If someone said choose one race to win, just one, and that was the only race you ever got to win, it would be the Indy 500.

    Jack Harvey on the Indianapolis 500, indianapolismotorspeedway.com, February 21st 2019

  • Why do you think there are so many skid marks? It's not because it's a lovely corner.

    John Andretti, Indy 2010

  • Andy Granatelli for as much as he put into the sport, especially at Indianapolis. I had to deal with that big kiss. I can still smell the garlic.

    Mario Andretti on Andy Granatelli after the 1969 Indianapolis 500

  • It's just great, pure racing.

    Sebastien Bourdais on IndyCar, June 2015

  • 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

  • Broke a glass at a restaurant. Apologize to the waiter, he looks at me, says "Accidents happen. YOU know what I mean!"

    James Hinchcliffe via Twitter, December 17th 2015

  • It was a very good test in terms of outright speed, but I did destroy a car the first day.

    Dan Wheldon, Homestead test 2007

    James Hinchcliffe on crashing out at Long Beach, April 22nd 2013

  • Some of the drivers roll out this 'safety' word, and suddenly it ties everybody's hands. But those arguments make no sense anyway. Remove downforce and you actually improve safety

    Rick Mears on downforce, Motorsport.com, October 28th 2015

  • I was going good but then I slipped in my own drool.
