ITP Teams Earn Class Wins At Heartland Challenge
Ontario, California, August 26, 2015 – Team ITP Tires & Wheels competed at the 8th annual Heartland Challenge endurance race over the weekend in Carlisle, Iowa, and came away with two class wins
ITP had two other ATV teams competing at the 2015 Heartland Challenge. The Media Allstars team of Mark and Dale Batson, who also race for the team in the Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) series, competed on a No. 99 Yamaha YFZ outfitted with ITP Holeshot GNCC front tires and QuadCross XC rear tires. The tandem completed 22 laps in a time of 7:37:38 to win the class by a minute. That time was also good enough for 10th overall among all 76 ATV teams that participated.
A trio of racers also scored an impressive second-place finish in the A class riding the No. 133 JW Builders / Root River Racing Honda. Haedyn Mickelson, Dalton “Bubba” Hicks and Kyle Burman used ITP Holeshot GNCC tires, front and rear, on their ATV to record not only a podium finish in their class, but also a sixth-place finish in the overall ATV results. Their time of 7:38:26 was less than 30 seconds behind fourth place.
