Red Bull Races Move To U.S.


The Red Bull Air Race series moves to North America in a few weeks and the last race on its European leg set the stage for drama on this side of the Atlantic. Australia’s Matt Hall won Sunday’s race at EuroSpeedway Lusitz in Germany followed by Germany’s Matthias Dolderer. Canada’s Pete McLeod was third for his first podium finish of the Red Bull season. Sunday’s result sets up a three-way race for the overall 2016 championship.

Dolderer is in the overall lead with 65.25 points on the season and Hall is second at 48.75 points. Austria’s Hannes Arch is third at 41 points. Only Hall and Arch have a mathematical chance of overtaking Dolderer but American Kirby Chambliss could get into the top three overall with strong performances on his home turf. The next race is Oct. 1-2 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the first time the iconic track has hosted the event. The season wraps up at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Oct. 15-16.
