The Heartland Challenge Side by Side Endurance Race Report
Carlisle, Iowa, August 19, 2011
The National Guard Polaris Coastal Dragonfire Yokley Racing Team finished 2nd Overall, and 1st in the Side by Side Open Class. There were 19 teams competing in the race. The team consisted of drivers William Yokley and Scott Kiger, and passenger Joe Waligora.
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.
