RT Pro has partnered with IATVHSS for this year’s Heartland Challenge race to present the RT Pro UTV Challenge Section. Every year the Heartland has a bypass section of the course for ATV’s to potentially save time but also be taken out of the race. This year RT Pro has stepped up to bring this additional challenge to the UTV racers.
The Heartland Challenge was started by the Iowa ATV Hare Scramble Series (IATVHSS) and will running its seventh year in 2014. It originally only included ATV’s, which are still the main draw, but in years past has seen massive growth in the UTV division. This race draws over 1300 people to a giant field in the middle of Iowa. With 36 UTV entries last year Race Director Andy Kyner expects 2014 to be the biggest year for the UTV classes yet. The Heartland Challenge is a hair scramble style race with a 4.5 mile course and 4 continuous hours of high speed adrenaline pumping action bring the cars through fields, woods and MX sections. It’s an intense race and it a true test of man and machine. Kyner says, “This is a driver’s race. We make sure everything that comes from the sponsors gets paid back to the racers. Throughout the weekend there will be just over twenty five thousand dollars paid out to the racers.”
This year the addition of the RT Pro Challenge Section not only brings double the action but it brings double the prize money for the UTV class. RT Pro has worked with IATVHSS to develop a new section of track that will truly challenge man and machine. Additionally, RT Pro has invested in this event by bringing more money for the racers. The stakes are higher and so is the action this year. Additionally, this section is laid out with the spectator in mind. The section is easily accessible and viewable for race teams and spectators. Loud Performance Products and TheRiderScope.com will be present for the event and will be live-streaming video from this section of the course the day of the race. The affiliation of RT Pro with these companies brings more UTV specific attention and media than ever before.
