• 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.

    Simon Pagenaud on the 2016 season, ESPN.com, September 18th 2016

  • When you tug at a guy in the pit lane, I think that is taking advantage of your gender, because it puts me in an awkward position.

    Dan Wheldon on Danica Patrick, June 2007

  • 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.

    Sam Hornish Jr, Indy 2006

  • Whoever has got the big balls is going to go fast!

    Helio Castroneves

  • That was the hairiest day I've ever had.

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

    Dan Wheldon, Kansas 2007

  • It's a living, breathing, organism.

    Eddie Cheever on Indianapolis Motor Speedway

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

    Fernando Alonso on the Indy 500, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 19th 2019

    Tony Kanaan, Fontana 2005

  • Good morning from the start/finish line at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

    Sarah Fisher, August 2006

  • As a past driver, I'd answer the phone if Roger or Chip called...

    Sarah Fisher on keeping Josef Newgarden in her team, Racer.com, August 3rd 2015

  • Going into Texas with four wheels on the car is pretty exciting!

    Sarah Fisher after the 2009 Indianapolis 500

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

    Will Power on the 2016 season, ESPN.com, September 18th 2016

  • You don't pay me to run second.

    Dan Wheldon to Chip Ganassi, Nashville 2006

    Danica Patrick after Iowa 2009, via Twitter

  • I'm a moving chicane out here!

    Juan Pablo Montoya, lap 42 at St Pete's, March 30th 2014

  • The only reason I'm wearin' it is so I didn't leave it in no hotel nowhere!

    A.J. Foyt on his Indy 500 winner's ring, Detroit, June 3rd 2016

    James Hinchcliffe on beard growth, Tim and Sid's Plays of the Week, September 14th 2015

  • ...one of the things that has always been wrong with that theory that NASCAR is the enemy... and they are... is because the people at NASCAR need to protect NASCAR.

    Curt Cavin on Trackside, May 13th 2010

  • The Indianapolis 500 is about the fastest 33 Indy car drivers going for one prize. If they happen to come from America, that's great.

    Tony Stewart, May 2007

  • 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 run around in the back with the squirrels, you're bound to get your nuts cracked.
