SPEEDWAY, Ind. (WTHR) — Each summer the Indianapolis Motor Speedway turns into a high speed, acrobatic arena for daredevil pilots in the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. That ends this year.
A statement Wednesday from IMS to Eyewitness News reads in part: “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."
If you already purchased tickets for the event, you will receive an email on Wednesday with information about getting your refund.
