Indianapolis Motor Speedway President J. Douglas Boles releases a statement on Wednesday about the cancellation of this year’s Red Bull Air Race World Championship event at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
“We were informed this morning by management of the Red Bull Air Race organization that the 2019 championship will be suspended after September and that this year’s round at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, scheduled for Oct. 19-20, is canceled.
“We are disappointed that we will not host another Red Bull Air Race event, and I know many of our fans will be disappointed, as well. We enjoyed watching the pilots navigate the unique course over the Indianapolis Motor Speedway grounds, and we were especially excited to see American pilot Michael Goulian celebrate a well-earned victory last year.
“Customers who already purchased tickets to this year’s event will receive refunds. They will receive an email later today with information on that process.”
