You can still grab a ticket to watch the Red Bull Air Race from the comfort of the Checkered Flag Club – and say you were there for the inaugural event at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway This premium area also allows fans to watch pilots take off and land inside the oval, which we haven’t seen at IMS in more than a century.”
