  • If he thinks I'm not going to remember that, HE'S CRAZY!

    Danica Patrick on Dan Wheldon, Milwaukee 2007

    Sam Hornish Jr, Indy 2006

  • Second place is nothing.

    Marco Andretti, Indy 2006

  • You don't pay me to run second.

    Dan Wheldon to Chip Ganassi, Nashville 2006

  • 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

  • They're creating a much bigger problem than the one they're trying to solve. And it's mind-boggling, absolutely mind-boggling, that they don't see it and that these discussions have even made it this far.

    James Hinchcliffe on INDYCAR mandating domed skids, Motorsport.com, April 5th 2016

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

  • I can't control what size I am and how I'm built. All I know is the NBA doesn't lower the hoop for short guys.

    Danica Patrick, June 2005

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

  • I promise you this: it isn't the last you've seen of me at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. My last time there will not be a day when I'm walking out with my tail between my legs.

    Paul Tracy, Indy Bump Day 2010

  • We won a 500-mile race - not the right one, but we won a 500-miler...

    Tom Carnegie

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

    Tony Stewart, May 2007

    Paul Tracy on lax penalties for avoidable contact, Long Beach 2014

  • You don't gotta win by five seconds - you just gotta win.

  • I WILL win at Kentucky.

    Will Power, Chicago 2010

  • When Will was going off on Versus, I was cracking up. I was like, man, I didn't know you could talk like that! And I never knew you could say 'wanker' on TV, but that's my new word for now on... so I guess something good did come out of Toronto!
