MG Tires was victorious at the 2018 Rock Island Grand Prix with karters racing on MG tires earning the top three finishing spots in the “King of the Streets” shifter class.

Karters from all over the country took to the 6/10-mile street course over Labor Day weekend.  Competitors Rory van der Steur and Austin Wilkins battled it out in the 19th running of the “King of the Streets” class, with van der Steur claiming the Rock trophy.  Wilkins took second place and Josh Lane claimed third, rounding out the podium for one of the most high-profile open tire shifter races of the year.

MG Tires USA is happy to award the podium finishers with a $500 check to Rory for his huge victory, and a set of tires each to Austin and Josh for their 2nd and 3rd place finishes.  

All three drivers were dominant in their class using the MG FZ Yellow compound, besting several other competing tire manufacturers in the event.  MG has proven to the be the brand to beat time and time again. Thanks to all MG drivers at the Rock Island Grand Prix for your continued support.
