    Dan Wheldon

  • Pounding down toward the yard of bricks...

    Tom Carnegie

  • 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.

  • We are unified.

    Terry Angstadt, February 22nd 2008
