The Heartland Challenge is a true ATV
endurance race that is designed for the Pro's,
to the amateurs, to UTV classes, and features
the toughest class of all, the Ironman class.
The two-day event offers plenty of fun and
excitement for everyone. There will be 13
classes racing all at the same time, with NO
breaks. Each team will be allowed up to 3
riders per team with as many quads. All
teams will be allowed to use only one quad at a
time, while all other quads will be held in a
secured location. Each team will be
allowed to switch out quads through out the
10-hour event, but no repairs or inspections
will be allowed on the ATVs while in impound.
There will be no breaks or time-outs during the
race, which means you will not lose the lead you
have on the other teams.
The Heartland Challenge also will be offering
the very first 3-Hour Challenge for youth ATV
riders with 5 different classes for ages ranging
from 4 to 15 years old. The 3-Hour Challenge
teams will be just like the big boys with up to
3 riders with as many quads without any breaks.
Side-by-Side racing has also been included by
popular demand to compete in their own 3 hour
challenge on Friday evening. We will be
offering 4 classes and the racing will wrap-up
after sunset, so lights will be required.

with pre-registration information, can be found
