• Without the IRL, a lot of guys would never have been able to show what they can do.

    Tony Stewart, May 2007

    Paul Tracy on AJ Foyt, May 2009

  • 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

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

  • ...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

  • Everyone remembers the pole winner for two weeks. Everyone remembers the race winner for life.

    Dan Wheldon on the Indy 500

    John Barnes on Sam Hornish Jr, indy 2003

  • It takes a lot of guts to expose yourself in front of millions of people, in front of all the media, in front of all your peers. If somebody came to me and said, "Hey, you want to run Texas in an IRL car," I'd say, "Hell, no. I don't want to get embarrassed." She's doing that. I have a lot of respect for that.

    Jeff Burton on Danica Patrick, June 2010

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

    Helio Castroneves

  • It was talent and skill, that's how I did it. A masterful display of driving ability!

  • If someone said choose one race to win, just one, and that was the only race you ever got to win, it would be the Indy 500.

    Helio Castroneves, June 2009

  • Gentlemen, start your engines.

    Wilbur Shaw

  • 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

  • We are unified.

    Terry Angstadt, February 22nd 2008
