Ready for 4 hours of fun

Summary

The Heartland Challenge is a true test of toughness for both man and machine.  The Yokley Racing Team decided to enter this race feeling confident that the Polaris Ranger RZR XP900 would be up to the task.  The team arrived on Friday and prepared for the 7:00 PM start.  The race started in late afternoon daylight, but most of the 4-hour race was run in darkness.  Good lighting was a must.

The race began with William Yokley getting a good start, and immediately starting to pull away from the pack.  William drove for the first 2 hours, and opened up a lead of several minutes.  The headlight package was working well, and the Polaris was running great.
