Cars By

IndyCar driver and Indianapolis 500 winner Alexander Rossi met Edge 540 pilot and Red Bull Air Race world champion Kirby Chambliss on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a race, followed by a ride-along.

After a friendly race on the famed motorsports track, each champ took the other on a ride in their respective vehicles. Both Rossi and Chambliss discovered a whole new type of G-Force; IndyCars have been known to top 240 mph, while the Edge cracks 260 mph, and it can travel upside down. Watch the video below, with the highlights including Rossi’s discovery of the thrills of barrel rolls and free falls.
