News Racing Heading to GBC Heartland Challenge


Shelbyville, TN  – Team UXC Racing’s Michael Swift will be heading to the 5th Annual GBC Heartland Challenge to defend his Pro Utility class title in the grueling ten hour race, and 2012 Ironman champion Forrest Whorton will be joining him.

  2011 Heartland Challenge Pro Utility Champion Michael Swift has once again signed on as the title sponsor for the UXC Racing Team for this event, while Can-am/BRP, Maxxis Tires and Rox Speed FX have also made significant contributions to the team’s racing efforts. “I really want to thank everyone for all of their support. Hopefully we will be giving them a couple of wins in return,” said Michael Swift.

There have been a few changes in the Heartland Challenge format for the Utility classes this year. The most notable change is the Pro Utility class will no longer be a team effort; instead it will be an ironman style race with one man and one quad for a solid ten hours of racing. “They have a format change and I will be running in the Pro Utility class this time,” stated Michael Swift.

The original Ironman class will still be intact as an open class and 2011   Ironman champion, Forrest Whorton, will be racing under the Can- Racing tent to defend that title.

The 5th Annual GBC Heartland Challenge is scheduled for August 16th – 19th in Carlisle, IA.
