    Chip Ganassi, Daytona 2008

    Graham Rahal on the Kentucky 300, August 2009

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

    Fernando Alonso on The Indy 500, The Players Tribune, May 18th 2017

    Tony Kanaan's blog, May 2007

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

  • It was a tough day – really disappointing... I guess it was a good day in reality.

    Josef Newgarden on finishing 7th at the IMS Road Course, July 4th 2020

    Tom Carnegie

    Will Power on testing the Aeroscreen, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, October 2nd 2019

    Tom Carnegie

  • He's grounded.

  • You don't pay me to run second.

    Dan Wheldon to Chip Ganassi, Nashville 2006

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

    Chip Ganassi on whether he'd allow Jaun Pablo Montoya to test for Penske, Houston, October 2013

  • 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.

  • I can't believe I'm here. It's so cool!

    Mike Conway in victory lane, Long Beach 2014

  • I know a lot of people say that Iowa is in the middle of nowhere, but you know what, we get such a great crowd and they're so enthusiastic. As a driver you could put me in paradise, but if there's nobody in the grandstands then it's not good racing.

    Dan Wheldon on Iowa Speedway, June 2009

  • She was acting like a spoiled brat. I don't respect that. I tried to step away. She kept grabbing on me like a dog that wanted to bite my ankles.
