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

  • Time to go to the back row party!

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

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

    Tom Carnegie

  • 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

  • I'm throwing this one out to Dan. This is his hometown, this is his car.

    James Hinchcliffe after his first career victory, St. Petersburg, March 24th 2013

    Dan Wheldon, Kansas 2007

  • I still have the passion to drive the hell out of it!

    Juan Pablo Montoya on his motivation, NBCSports.com, July 12th 2016

    Dan Wheldon on Danica Patrick, June 2007
