“To do something well is so worthwhile that to die trying to do it better cannot be foolhardy. It would be a waste of life to do nothing with one’s ability, for I feel that life is measured in achievement, not in years alone.”

 

Bruce McLaren

“There is no average reason for a person getting involved in racing.”

 

Bruce McLaren

“Racing should never be an ordeal, rather an enjoyable and life-enhancing experience.”

 

Bruce Fordyce

“More books, more racing and more foolishness with cars and motorcycles are in the works.”

 

Brock Yates

“There was a day when you could identify a NASCAR Ford, Chevrolet, or Dodge and they actually looked like “stock cars.” Now they are pod machines, slick on the outside but still powered by the same Neanderthal carbureted pushrod V-8s that have been under their hoods for half a century. If this is real auto racing, then the WWF ought to be part of the Olympics.”

“Racing shirts should be sold on big, thick rolls like paper towels.”

 

Brad Alan Lewis

“The slow boat-I know it’s the slow boat because I’ve been watching them for thirty-three weeks-won the first piece by a full length. Then the fast boat won the second piece. And so it went for the next four pieces, back and forth. Conclusion: I hate seat racing.”

“My No. 1 goal in racing was never to be the most popular driver.”

“I don’t put anything in front of taking ski racing and sports seriously.”

 

Bode Miller

“From 1999 to 2003 was the peak of equipment in ski racing. Since then, it’s all gone in the wrong direction.”

 

Bode Miller

“My team has been very unreceptive about the fact that I consistently show them that I train slightly differently than they do, that I consistently show them that I am in better shape for ski racing than anyone else on the team.”

 

Bode Miller

“My grandfather was very into horse racing, and I found some of his old journals and got into it from there. It has a lot of parallels to skiing. It’s a fun lifestyle, being around the racetrack.”

 

Bode Miller

“I still love racing and the challenge of it, but at some point, you get to a place where you’re perfectly happy moving on and doing other stuff.”

 

Bode Miller

“It is not that I don’t recognize the danger in ski racing, but that I don’t fear the consequences.”

 

Bode Miller

“In racing, I wanted to be a winner and to be a winner, you have to be willing to roll the dice.”

 

Bobby Rahal

“I remember all the entertainment shows showing pictures of Nicole Scherzinger annnnd that racing driver she was hanging around with.”

 

Bob Varsha

“You can’t make a racehorse out of a pig. But if you work hard enough at it you can make a mighty fast pig.”
