GBC Motorsports Heartland Challenge

$2,000 Cash for Top Women at GBC Heartland Challenge
GBC Heartland Challenge adds 12 Volt 30 Minute Fun Race

Anaheim, CA (8/11/2017) - Thanks to an anonymous donor, women ATV racers competing in this year’s 10th Anniversary GBC Motorsports Heartland Challenge will be fighting for a top prize of $2,000, race organizers announced today. In addition, Friday’s events will include a 30-minute “12-volt” race for children competing in Power Wheels-type vehicles. The Heartland Challenge is scheduled for August 18-19.

The aptly named Wonder Woman class allows for one-driver teams to compete iron woman style for the top prize in the 10-hour endurance race. The class will also pay back 100% of entries based on finishing position and entry numbers, as well as including GBC Bucks contingency payouts. The entry fee is just $200.

“It’s incredible that someone would be that generous,” said race promoter Andy Kyner. “This almost never happens, so this is great for everybody. It brings attention to the whole sport and especially to the women’s class.”

The Heartland Challenge is about wholesome family fun. Exemplifying that feeling will be a special kids race being run Friday, August 18. The class is open to children five years and younger riding any 12-volt battery-powered Power Wheels-type vehicle. The race is 30 minutes in length. Every participant will receive a plaque and all will be entered to win a Shelby Mustang GT 12 Volt car worth $500 courtesy of Toys’r’Us of South Des Moines.

“This is something we’ve done at our local races and we’ve seen up to 20 kids enter,” said Kyner. “It’s incredible to allow the kids to race. This just adds yet another aspect to the family feeling of this race. All these kids get to say they competed at the Heartland Challenge and it should be a lot of fun to watch.”

Drawing competitors and spectators from across the country, the Heartland Challenge offers four unique endurance races for youth and adults. Last year more than 150 teams from 21 states, Canada and the UK competed across 21 classes for trophies, cash payouts and bragging rights.

2017 promises to be another big year for the GBC Motorsports Heartland Challenge as the 1.5-hour Polaris Ace Challenge, the four-hour UTV Challenge, the three-hour Youth ATV Challenge and the 10-hour Adult ATV Challenge will determine the fastest teams and ironman competitors.
