Promoters of the Red Bull race series claimed a crowd count of 55,000 in San Diego this past weekend as pilots flew a low-level pylon course for points. It was the only time this year that the 15 pilots will race in the United States.

Ivanoff Nicolas of France won, remaining in second place for the series standings behind Hannes Arch of Austria. Americans Mike Mangold came in seventh, Kirby Chambliss came in twelfth, and Mike Goulian came in fourteenth. The next race is in Windsor, Canada.
