Ian Kowalski Lands Podium Position for 3rd Round in a Row

In 2018, Kowalski has been focused on taking his youth off-road racing career to new heights, developing his new race machine, the HISUN Strike 250.

UTV racer Ian Kowalski took the off-road racing scene by surprise in 2017, taking first place 10 times out of 20 races and being named the Lucas Oil Rookie of The Year and over-all champion in the youth 170cc class. In 2018, Kowalski has been focused on taking his youth off-road racing career to new heights, developing his new race machine, the HISUN Strike 250.

Kowalski started the 2018 off-road race season with a bang, taking first place in Round 3 and Round 4 of the Arizona Off-Road Promotions Race Series before seeing a seven-week drought.

“Having the opportunity to develop a new race car comes with trial and error, but we think we have a lot of things worked out and are excited for the rest of the season,” Kowalski said.

Since then, Kowalski and his Strike 250 have finished with a podium position in three consecutive rounds in the AZOP Race Series. Most recently, taking third place in the ninth round at the Lynx Creek Hare Scrambles.

“Developing a race car isn’t something that happens over night, but the HISUN strike 250 has developed faster than we had thought, it’s the best platform in the market,” said Bill McDowell, Kowalski’s step-father and chief crew leader. “Being eight-months into development, we have made big gains and will keep making more. We are excited to debut the second version of the race chassis. Testing will begin soon, and we are certain it will be a game changer. We are going to finish the year out strong and have our eyes set on making a full run at 2019 championships.”

With the stroke of racing luck running at an all-time high, Kowalski hopes to keep the momentum going through the rest of the season with only five rounds remaining. Follow Kowalski and company on his official Facebook page as he looks to cap off what has been “an awesome season.”

Kowalski’s previous 2018 victories include, first place in Round 1 of WORCS Series at Canyon Motosports Park, first place in Round 3 at the Q-Town Grand Prix, first place in Round 4 at 93 North Grand Prix, second place in Round 7 at Mormon Lake Grand Prix and third place in Round 8 at the Cinder Mountain Hare Scramble.
