WRX driver holds off Sandell and older brother Timmy for victory in Utah.
– The Hansen brothers took time out from their WRX duties to race Stateside with Kevin launching off the front row to beat polesitter Sandell into the first corner.
– He never gave up the lead from there with Sandell having to fend off 2018 champion Timmy, after the 27-year-old overcame a poor start over the six laps.
– Kevin, 21, said: “That start was just gold, then I did the six best laps I’ve ever done. They were spot on, not a single mistake. There’s not one thing I’m not happy about in that run and to come out just ahead of Patrik – what a day. I think this is the biggest event in rallycross. This is a world event and I’ve won, that’s just so cool.”
– Kevin, who also leads the 2019 Titans RX standings by 10 points from Timmy with three rounds left, returns to WRX action in France from August 31-September 1.
