Ian Kowalski Takes 2nd Place at Mormon Lake Grand Prix

After a tough fought battle, Kowalski was able to outlast the competition and grab second place despite the rough and unpredictable track conditions at the Mormon Lake Grand Prix.

HISUN Motors factory racer Ian Kowalski earned his third UTV 170cc / Trophy kart podium finish of the season on Sunday for Round 7 of the Arizona Off-Road Promotions Race Series in northern Arizona.

After a tough fought battle, Kowalski was able to outlast the competition and grab second place despite the rough and unpredictable track conditions at the Mormon Lake Grand Prix.

Ian got off to a great start as he maneuvered into a great position on the opening lap. After a few laps, he was able to capitalize and move into second place keeping himself close to the leader. From there, he kept a steady pace all the way to the checkered flag, his first podium position after seven tough weeks.

“This has been an exciting year for us,” Kowalski said. “Our results don’t show how great we have been running. 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.”

Despite the unpredictable track, Kowalski was able to record the fastest lap (2:36) of the race, outpacing the competition both Saturday and Sunday.

Previously, Kowalski finished first place in Round 3 at Q-Town Grand Prix and took first place during Round 4 at 93 North Grand Prix of the 2018 AZOP Race Series.
