"If it's meant for me to win it, I will...I don't want to put extra pressure on myself. It's so difficult to win a race, and even more difficult to win one that you pick. Indy doesn't owe me (anything). I'll just do my best." - Tony Kanaan, on the giant monkey on his back from not winning The Indianapolis 500, despite being the only driver ever to lead The Race in each of his first seven attempts.

(Note: Kanaan's 214 laps led are not only more laps led than two-time winner Helio Castroneves (162), it's also more than teammates Scott Dixon (147) and Dario Franchitti (50) combined.)
