2nd Annual GBC Motorsports
Heartland Challenge Announced
August 21-22, 2009 - Carlisle,
Carlisle, IA (6/1/2009) - The
second annual GBC Motorsports Heartland Challenge
event dates are now finalized with the racing
action set for the summer on August 21 -22, 2009.
The first annual GBC Motorsports Heartland Challenge
was held this past November 7-8th, and despite
snow, wind, and freezing temperatures, nearly
a hundred teams braved the elements to compete
in the 10 Hour ATV Challenge, 3 Hour Youth ATV
Challenge, and finally the 3 Hour UTV challenge.
For 2009, we have decided to move up the date
to a much warmer August 21-22nd, which will coincide
with the last weekend of the famous Iowa State
Fair in Des Moines, IA which attracts over one
million visitors annually. Also, the new end of
summer race date will provide much warmer and
pleasant temperatures for racers and spectators
to enjoy an action packed weekend of racing.
The race will once again be held in Carlisle,
IA, which is a suburb of Des Moines. The town
embraced the Heartland Challenge in 2008, and
we are excited to be heading back again to this
great town. The race location is conveniently
located near plenty of hotels, restaurants, and
the Des Moines International Airport, all of which
are located within 12 miles of the track.
All three team endurance races will return for
2009, with the 3 Hour Youth ATV Challenge, 3 Hour
UTV Challenge, and the 10 Hour ATV Challenge.
The event schedule, classes, and rules will be
released shortly, and be sure to check out the
