What is Heartland Challenge?

     There’s no other extreme ATV/UTV endurance race like it in the U.S with TEN STRAIGHT HOURS of ATV racing! It takes guts to enter but determination and skills to survive. When most racers take some time off for the summer, the daring enter the Heartland Challenge to keep competing. They continually strive to be the best, stopping at nothing to bring home the win and the coveted corn cob trophy!
     SXS teams are also put to the challenge with a four hour race that starts as the sun sets Friday night. Both amateur and pro teams are on the track with one goal in mind. But the fun isn’t just for the adults; kids get their chance at glory by competing in 3-hour youth race early Saturday morning.
     GBC is proud to be the title sponsor of the Heartland Challenge. It’s an opportunity for us to give back to the sport we care so passionately about. Special bonuses are GBC Bucks contingency prizes for those riding GBC tires.
     Come out and race if you have what it takes, or cheer on your favorite teams. Either way we looking forward to seeing you there!
