Quotes of the week
"I don't mean this in a bad way, but I would not have any interest in purchasing it [Dale Earnhardt Inc.]. I would not have any interest in purchasing any race team, just to have the ownership. I didn't ever feel like she [Dale's stepmother Teresa] would be interested in selling the company. I don't think that is in Teresa's character to give that company up. She feels that strong about it. She felt that strong about it a couple of years ago. But maybe she sees the trend and some of the other things that are happening with other owners. Maybe she's changed her mind." Dale Earnhardt Jr., NASCAR driver, Hendrick Motorsports

“It's a big night for Target Chip Ganassi Racing. Every time we ran this car, I've won with it, here at Nashville and at Watkins Glen. It's been a hell of a lot of luck for us, but you could not have been luckier than we were tonight. It was a miscommunication on the pit call. That's the only reason that I didn't come in. I was angry for a few laps, but when I saw that rain coming down, I thought, ‘Oh, this could work out pretty good. (Tony Kanaan) was pretty strong and he seemed to get the worst out of it."  When asked if he had learned to play the guitar yet, Dixon replied "I haven't. If I do, it might be bad luck, so I'm not going to learn for a long time." Scott Dixon, IndyCar driver, Target Chip Ganassi Racing, winner of Nashville race

“I have to thank these guys.  I gave up on myself and didn’t think I could do that.  I’ve watched Jimmie Johnson do that a few times and I don’t know how I did that.  This M&M’s Toyota team is just phenomenal tonight.  Great pit stops all night.  Every time we came down pit road we had fast pit stops.  I can’t believe this. I really don’t believe how good things are going.  It’s just been a phenomenal year.  Something just so special.  I have to thank the good Lord from up above.  I don’t know where this is coming from, but he’s blessing us all at Joe Gibbs Racing this year.  This is just a privilege to be a part of and we’re so proud.” Kyle Busch, NASCAR's dominant Sprint Cup driver, Joe Gibbs Racing, winner of Chicagoland race

"I'm with the best team and they have so much information on oval. I won my first race on an oval. It's amazing. The car was the best one today, and we did it. I'm really, really happy to win as a driver, a driver that came from Brazil and is a rookie in the series. I'm really happy to be a winner as a driver, no matter of the gender." Ana Beatriz, Firestone Indy Lights driver, Sam Schmidt Motorsports, first woman to win an Indy Lights race

“We just can’t get a break. We’ve had a big string of bad luck the last couple of races. I was trying to settle into the race and was running outside the No. 26 car of Marco Andretti, and he lost it and collected me. It’s really unfortunate because we thought we learned a few things from Helio’s setup that we hoped would help us, too, but we didn’t have a chance to see.  Hopefully we'll be able to put this all behind us moving forward and turn in a good result at Mid-Ohio.” Ryan Briscoe, IndyCar driver ,Team Penske

“It’s surreal. To go into the most famous and busiest intersection in America and to see a 90-foot image of myself was like a dream. It was actually crazier to see my name up there than it was to see my picture. To see that billboard changed like that was really cool, and I still can’t believe that it worked out like that, that we won the race on the weekend we announce our partnership." (The IZOD company had an IndyCar show car painted in its corporate livery for the Times Square photo shoot and used the car with Hunter-Reay near the billboard.) Ryan Hunter-Reay, IndyCar driver, Rahal Letterman Racing

“It was a great day, a great finish. I felt a little like a bowling pin at the beginning just getting pushed around. Our strategy was just incredible to get our lap back and make some repairs and David did a great job making the pass and getting the win.” Scott Sharp, ALMS driver, Patron Highcroft Racing, winner along with David Brabham of Lime Rock race

"People try to make a big thing out of it, but he shouldn't come on top of my stuff. It was just a small thing and people tried to make a big story out of it." (Commenting on shoving veteran F1 photographer, Paul-Henri Cahier, to the ground on the Silverstone grid) Kimi Raikkonen, reigning Formula 1 World Champion, Ferrari

"I can think of few things more unerotic than Nazi role-play. All my life I had it hanging over me with the undercurrent from my parents and the last thing I would want to do is for that to enter my sexual life. I fundamentally disagree with the suggestion that any of this is depraved or immoral. It's a perfectly harmless activity provided it's between consenting adults in private and nobody knows about it." (Mosley is suing the News of the World for breach of privacy over allegations that he was involved in what the paper called a "sick Nazi orgy" with five prostitutes) Max Mosley, President FIA
