| After Janet Guthrie had qualified for the Indy 500- In company with the first lady to ever qualify at Indianapolis -gentlemen, start your engines.
| Cornering is like bringing a woman to a climax. Both you and the car must work together. You start to enter the area of excitement at the corner, you set up a pace which is right for the car and after you've told it it is coming along with you, you guide it along at a rhythm which has by now become natural. Only after you've cleared the corner you can both take pleasure in knowing it's gone well.

| On winning the Indy 500- It sure didn't make me the million dollars people said it would, but it sure made my ex-wife happy.
