Jan Kowalski is also known as "The Polish Prankster" by his fellow racers. Everyone tries to keep this tracker on their radar!

At the start of the New York-Iceland leg, he was in ninth place before getting to fifth place during the race.

After Dusty crashes in the Pacific and needs repairs, Kowalski gives him supplies and says that it is honor to fly with him.

Profiles and statistics

  • Bio
    • "Fellow racers affectionately refer to Jan as the "Polish Prankster". His pistons are always firing up ways to mess with his pals - whether it's putting a stink bomb in their exhaust systems or attaching a "Buzz me!" banner to their tails. Savvy racers keep this trickster on their radar, so they don't end up as the rudder of his jokes."[1]


  • His name is well known in Poland, being the same name as the first Minister Generalis (Minister General) of the order of the Mariavites. Director Klay Hall probably granted him by using his name for the character (one of the Polish pilots was also called Jan Kowalski).
  • His wings have white and red squares. This the symbol of the Polish Air Force.
  • He appears in the Blu-ray exclusive animation for the song "Ein Crop Duster Can Race".
  • The Polish version says that it gives Dusty Crophopper Super Brake Pads.
