Graduate of Carmel High School commands GMR Grand Prix



Indianapolis, Indiana – Drew Kibler, a recent graduate of Carmel High School, gave the signal for the start of the GMR Grand Prix inside the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Saturday afternoon.

Kibler, a swimmer for Team USA, had been designated as the race’s grand marshal in advance.

“Great experience,” said Kibler. “It was awesome.”

Kibler claimed that this visit to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway was his first.

“I didn’t start rehearsing at all until my friend I’m here with asked me I practiced,” said Kibler. “And I was like, ‘No. Not once.’ So we practiced a few times up in the pagoda suite, but we couldn’t be super loud. I think it went alright.”

Alex Palou of Chip Ganassi Racing eventually won the GMR Grand Prix of the NTT IndyCar Series on Saturday.
