Anaheim, Calif. - May 7, 2021 - The fan-favorite GBC Tires Heartland Challenge Race returns for 2021. Due to restrictions and limitations, last year’s event was postponed for both safety and health concerns. Moving forward, we now believe we can safely continue our yearly tradition of hosting the most demanding race in the country, the GBC Heartland Challenge. The dates for this year’s race have been confirmed for August 6th -7th and fans and participants are already making preparations for the big event.

We are excited to announce that this year’s race will be hosted in Fort Dodge, IA at Sports Park Raceway. GBC Tires will continue its support of both ATV and UTV athletes by hosting a series of races containing multiple classes and age groups for all racers to participate in. Families are also encouraged to come out and experience all the action. In keeping up with the tradition of our annual challenge, GBC is bringing back its infamous Challenge section and Ironman Race, as well as other special classes and events for spectators to enjoy and participate in. When asked about how he felt about this year’s Heartland Challenge, Andy Kyner, Heartland Promoter replied:

“We're very excited to bring the Heartland Challenge race to Fort Dodge this year. The support we have received from the city and its residents has been overwhelming. For this year’s race, we’ll have full access to the half-mile oval dirt track, a newly designed Challenge section, and acres of wooded areas to explore. The bleachers are now centrally located near the concession stand so fans are closer to key areas in the event. This new venue provides a welcoming experience for all fans and participants. We are grateful for the city, its residents, GBC Tires, and everyone who has pulled together to make this event possible."
