• That's a good way to lose a championship.

    Tony Kanaan, Kansas 2007

  • Whatever you heard, somebody made it up. For the first two days, he talked nonsense because he had a concussion. It doesn't matter what he was saying. He doesn't even remember it.

    Graham Rahal on winning at Mid-Ohio, Instagram, August 3rd 2015

    John Andretti, Indy 2010

  • It's a new... track... record!

    Tom Carnegie

    Simon Pagenaud on Will Power's misfortune at Sonoma, ESPN.com, September 18th 2016

  • The minute he got in front of me, he slowed down half-a-second a lap because he knows I'm fighting him for the championship and he was out of the race. It's probably the most unsportsmanlike thing I've ever seen on the racetrack, apart from shunting someone into a wall.

    Wade Cunningham on Sebastien Saavedra, Iowa 2009

  • Will he get through? Where is he? Where is he? There he is!

    Tom Carnegie on A.J. Foyt, 1967

  • I promise you this: it isn't the last you've seen of me at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. My last time there will not be a day when I'm walking out with my tail between my legs.

  • Patience is a virtue... and someone wasn't very virtuous today.

    James Hinchcliffe on an unnamed driver, Long Beach 2014

    Tony Kanaan on Will Power, Toronto, July 2011

  • Downforce is the enemy of racing.

    Rick Mears, Motorsport.com, September 15th 2016

  • 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

    James Hinchcliffe on INDYCAR mandating domed skids, Motorsport.com, April 5th 2016
