GBC Heartland Challenge Start
$20,000 cash is on the line for class winners

Classes and payouts have been set for the 2015 GBC Motorsports Heartland Challenge. An air horn will signal the start of the race, and hundreds of racers will sprint to their vehicles for the Le Mans style start. $20,000 cash is on the line for class winners of this four-hour UTV race and 10-hour ATV race.

Organizers are expecting to draw more than 100 teams and ironman class competitors to the event.

“If you want to be the best at what you do, you have to work hard at it,” says professional ATV racer and GBC rep Johnny Gallagher. “It’s tempting to take some time off during the mid-season break, but the real competitors will take the opportunity to test their fitness and sharpen their skills at events like the Heartland Challenge.”

Race organizers Andy and Tracy Kyner have announced the revised classes and payouts for the 2015 event. The top classes at this year’s challenge will be the AA Pro class, the Pro 4×4 class, the Ironman class and the UTV 1000 class. More than $20,000 cash is up for grabs for class winners; see the full class and payout list below:

ClassClass Winner Payout
Pro 4×4$3,000
UTV 1000$3,000
UTV 900$2,000
UTV 800$1,500
