"The way you set up the cars is you put a lot of grip in there and then they keep removing it until the driver just can’t stand it anymore, because he thinks he’s going to hit the wall."
Many enjoyable quotes and sound bites. Foyt used to say --- based on massive experience -- that you cannot just push harder in the hope of improving your speed, "you have to be patient and let the track come to you." I suspect this is truer of the big oval that it is of any other race track.
