    Paul Tracy on AJ Foyt, May 2009

    Bobby Rahal on the benefits of a spec series, Racer.com, May 18th 2016

    Felix Rosenqvist, Motorsports.com, September 17th 2019

    Dan Wheldon on Iowa Speedway, June 2009

  • I just can't wait to get back in the car. I wonder if I'm still any good.

    Will Power on testing the Aeroscreen, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, October 2nd 2019

  • This place isn't easy. It's not supposed to be easy. This place starts the 33 fastest, best-prepared cars. Obviously, I missed.

    Paul Diatlovitch, Indy Bump Day 2007

  • We're all back to square zero!

    James Hinchcliffe on the start of a new season, Trackside, March 18th 2014

    Danica Patrick on Dan Wheldon, June 2007

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

  • It was so scary for me. I don't know what else to say. I don't know what happened but it felt like my front and rear wings were upside down.

    Marco Andretti, Kansas 2007

  • 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.

  • I can tell you one thing, with 50 to go, I thought we were going to go home and close our tent.

    Roger Penske, Indy 2006

  • Everyone thinks that running in dirty air causes the front end to wash out, but actually it affects the whole car and you just can't follow someone close in fast or medium-speed corners since the aerokits came in.
