Goulian Wins Second Red Bull Air Race of the Year in Indianapolis


For the second time this season, professional air racer and ICAS member Michael Goulian came in first place at the Red Bull Air Race World Championship, winning again at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on October 6 and 7.

With a winning time of 1:06.208, Goulian became the first U.S. pilot to write his name on the list of motorsport winners at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and is currently in first place for the overall Red Bull Air Race World Championship standings with 70 points.

“It’s a big day. Right now, the season doesn’t even mean anything, because to win at Indy is amazing,” Goulian said after the race. “Sometimes the day just works out for you, and today it did. It feels great to win here.”

Following his victory, Goulian kissed the hallowed Yard of Bricks at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway – a tradition started by NASCAR champion Dale Jarrett in 1996.
Additionally, ICAS member Pete McLeod took the second place position on the pedestal and ICAS member Kirby Chambliss came in eighth. ICAS member Kevin Coleman raced in the 2018 Indianapolis Challenger Cup and finished fourth.

The final race of the 2018 competition is on November 17 and 18 at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas.
