We will always remember today as a country. Over 2400 killed and around 1000 missing, the Pearl Harbor attacks still live in infamy.

American pilot, Kirby Chambliss, finds himself back on the podium for the second time this season with a third place finish in Fort Worth Texas. This strong finale to the 2018 Red Bull Air Race season generates momentum that Team Chambliss plans to carry into the 2019 season.

“Everything we learned during the practice and qualifying rounds, we can chuck out the window. The change in weather created an entirely different track,” Chambliss explains.

The frigid weather doesn’t dampen the excitement. The fourth-place finish in Saturday’s Qualifying round puts Chambliss head-to-head against France’s Mika Brageot in the Round of 14. Brageot, first to fly, has a clean run and a fast time of 53.152. Chambliss also race through the track with a clean run, but is edged out by a mere 0.11s. His time was one of the faster posted in the round of 14 and enough to earn a place in the round of 8 as fastest loser.

This finish places him in the first Heat to race head-to-head against Yoshi Muroya. The excitement continues as Muroya sets the pace with a time 52.519s. Chambliss easily wins the round with his fastest time of the day—51.984s—securing a position in the final four.

“Conditions didn’t change much from the first run to the third run” Chambliss states. But, flying first in the Round of 4, Chambliss is slower than his previous round with a time of 54.064. This time is fast enough to secure the third position on the podium. Chambliss states, “Third wasn’t the spot we wanted to be in, but still respectable. I would love to win the championship next year. This gives us a good start for 2019, so it will be awesome”.

The Fort Worth race is also the 2018 season finale. Martin Sonka is crowned as World Champion with Matt Hall taking second and Michael Goulian rounding out the podium finishers. Kirby Chambliss finishes 6th overall.
