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

    Dan Wheldon

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

    A Sarah Fisher malapropism, Texas 2007

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

  • I'm throwing this one out to Dan. This is his hometown, this is his car.

    James Hinchcliffe after his first career victory, St. Petersburg, March 24th 2013

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

  • Good news is we've won every race we've finished!

    James Hinchcliffe on crashing out at Long Beach, April 22nd 2013

    John Andretti, Indy 2010

  • I'm the happiest guy on earth right now!

    Rinus VeeKay on finishing 5th at the IMS Road Course, July 4th 2020

    Tom Carnegie

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

    Eddie Gossage on the Bombardier Lear Jet 500, May 2009

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

  • We're all back to square zero!

    James Hinchcliffe on the start of a new season, Trackside, March 18th 2014

    Marco Andretti, Kansas 2007

  • Eyes on the starter...

    Tom Carnegie

    Colton Herta watching a replay of his pass on Rossi, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, 3rd October 2020

  • It's a great feeling. I wouldn't trade it for anything else.

    Sam Hornish Jr. on winning the 90th Indy 500

  • 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.

    Roger Yasukawa, Indy 2007

  • I don't know him at all. Is he in his own little world?

    Kevin Lee on Jacques Villeneuve, Trackside, August 2012

    Fernando Alonso on what his mother would think about the Indy 500, motor.as.com, April 20th 2016

  • Having raced all over the planet, I would say that IndyCar is the toughest beast yet to master for me.

    Felix Rosenqvist, Motorsports.com, September 17th 2019

  • 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.

    Tony Kanaan on Marco & Danica, June 2009 at Texas Motor Speedway

  • Having a pulse should make you want to attend the 500.

    James Hinchcliffe on what should make you want to attend the 500, via Twitter, April 2012

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

    Tom Carnegie on A.J. Foyt, 1967
