Road America proudly welcomes the 25th Flying Training Squadron, 71st Flying Training Wing for a military flyover during the pre-race ceremonies for the NTT IndyCar Series REV Group Grand Prix presented by American Medical Response on June 20. The squadron based out of Vance AFB, in Enid, Okla., will pilot four T-38’s across the sky to honor our country and pay tribute to America’s first responders during the National Anthem.
“The flyover is one of the most memorable moments of race weekend, and we are honored to welcome the 25th Flying Training Squadron, 71st Flying Training Wing,” said Road America President and General Manager, Mike Kertscher. “We are grateful to the service members who serve in our military, and we look forward to welcoming these brave pilots as we pay tribute to America’s first responders.”
