    Tom Carnegie on A.J. Foyt, 1967

  • I'm 19 years old, I drive Indy cars... I'm happy.

    Marco Andretti, July 2006

    Mario Andretti on Andy Granatelli after the 1969 Indianapolis 500

  • You don't pay me to run second.

    Dan Wheldon to Chip Ganassi, Nashville 2006

    Paul Tracy, Indy Bump Day 2010

  • He said its the best team out there. If its the best team, he shouldn't have a problem.

    Sarah Fisher, August 2006

  • The things that play on your mind the most are the ones that just got away.

    Buddy Lazier on the Indy 500

  • 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.

    Mikhail Aleshin on drivers who are too scared to run the Indy 500, May 16th 2017

  • I think this is something that will really change the complexion of the sport for a long time to come, so this is big

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