Om Malik

Jacques Villeneuve
NASCAR, there’s nothing wrong with it, it’s very competitive, but the specs are very tight on tolerances.
Robby Gordon

When I decided to see what Nascar was all about in 2005, it was an intellectual project, the same reason I went to the shooting range on West 20th Street and tried shooting a rifle at paper targets. I was addicted to both things instantly.
S.E. Cupp
NASCAR fans are very knowledgeable and very passionate.

Brian France
I’ve never had any issues with racism or racist people at the track for as long as I’ve been racing in NASCAR. All of that stuff that has happened to my face took place when I was coming up.

Elana Meyers
Horseracing already has the highest mortality rate of any sport in the world per capita to the people who do it. If you crash in Nascar you still have a roll bar, and a cage, and a lot of protection. It’s built to crash, but if you fall off a racehorse we all know what can happen, so it’s tremendously dangerous.
Gary Ross
A NASCAR guy can drop-kick another driver through his car window and it is just considered part of the sport. Hockey players drop their sticks and pound on one another on a regular basis and no one dares blame it on anything other than just a boiling, competitive spirit.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
I’m different than the normal NASCAR driver, I listen to hip-hop music.

In every decision that we’ve ever made that’s important, the more input, the more people we’ve heard from, the better the result. And so that will never change in the business model of NASCAR, because the ideas come from all over the place, and that’s the strength that we have.
Brian France
We’re going to do whatever it takes to bring that NASCAR style of racing on the track to full fruition. That’s simply what we have to do.

Kyle Larson
Nashville has so many music fans and fans of music are also fans of NASCAR and just the atmosphere here throughout town gives you a good feel.

Formula One was just cool. I loved racing, all types of racing, but from a young age, Formula One was the noise and everything, and that’s what I was drawn to.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

Larry the Cable Guy
No one should feel uncomfortable when they come to a NASCAR race, so it starts with Confederate flags. Get them out of here. They have no place for them.

Brett Eldredge
I’m from West Virginia. If you didn’t know what was happening in NASCAR, you were on the outside. NASCAR is a big league sport, but it’s still also country and redneck.
Randy Moss
Even though the album is an endangered species, can we try and make a coherent and good one, even if it’s like making a horse and cart at a Nascar conference?
Chris Martin
Boy, do I dislike two things: One is having to deal with penalties or infractions even though we have to. We have to keep the playing field even, and we have to do what we have to do. The second part that I would prefer to not have to talk about is the business side of NASCAR. That’s important, too.
Brian France
It’s something we’re trying to change and NASCAR is as a whole trying to bring in a younger fan base, a different-looking fan base, we’re trying to change the whole demographic of the sport. Me going out to do that is something I’ll take responsibility for.

Chase Elliott
NASCAR is not immune to the down economy.
Brian France

Brian France
All those people who go to NASCAR and sing country & western songs and live in Tennessee, they totally ignore me, they don’t come to my shows, I just don’t exist for them and they don’t exist for me.
Al Stewart
You know, I think in Europe NASCAR is not regarded as high as it should.
Juan Pablo Montoya
‘Drive for Diversity’ puts people behind the wheel that would never have had the opportunity. Nascar sponsors individual teams who have a person of color, somebody who would not have the opportunity otherwise. And then they’re noticed by bigger teams – it’s like minor-league baseball.
Brian France
In NASCAR, you don’t have to be as physically strong as in some other forms of racing. You’ve just got to be able to endure the heat and endurance of it.

Charles Duhigg
These regional series - we need to have them strong to

These regional series – we need to have them strong to feed drivers to the Truck series. Nothing against ARCA, but NASCAR needs to have their own series be their own streams.
Kevin Harvick
When a car’s ahead of you, as long as you can see it, you get a tow, just like the draft in NASCAR. Even if it’s a long ways down the track, it punches a hole in the air that has to help. When you’re running alone, you can feel the difference, and it shows on the clock, too.
