  • 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!

    Tony Kanaan on Will Power, Toronto, July 2011

  • The day started when I walked into Gasoline Alley and saw the grandstands. It was my first time here on race day and it was quite unbelievable.

    Alex Tagliani on the 2009 Indianapolis 500

  • We are trying to fix them but when you start behind the eight ball like last year you are playing catch-up and you will continue to play catch-up until we get rid of these stupid kits!

    Michael Andretti on aerokits, Autosport.com, 15th April 2016

  • Do you think I give a flying f*** what Buddy Rice thinks?

    Dan Wheldon

  • 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

  • The race that made the IRL famous!

    Eddie Gossage on the Bombardier Lear Jet 500, May 2009

  • Obviously we always see the good days, but Gil de Ferran told me if you can have a bad day and nobody notices, that's how you do a really good job - and that's how you win a championship.

    Dan Wheldon on the Indy 500

    Chip Ganassi on Honda, St Petersberg, March 23rd 2013

  • It's amazing how different an Indycar is from anything else on a racetrack.

  • I've never been so happy to be in last place.

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

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

    John Andretti, Indy 2010

  • If you're an open-wheel racer and not at Indy in May, you're not really a race car driver. You just think you are.

    Eddie Cheever

  • I need a nap now.

    Colton Herta on winning his first IndyCar race, COTA, 24th March 2019

  • Finishing in the Top-10 here was because of nutrition.

  • With photos, sometimes people get old. Not me, but some people do.

    Robin Miller on Kevin Kalkoven, February 2008

  • Howard and me set the first and third fastest times of the day, and we both got beaten to grid slot 33 by a kid in Methodist Hospital with a smoking wreck of a car. The magic of Indy, huh?

    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
