Paso Robles, Calif. – March 5th, 2013 – Lazer Star Lights is proud to announce their 2nd year as Official Lighting Sponsor for 2013 Heartland Challenge Endurance Race.
Lazer Star Lights will be the official lighting sponsor for the 6th Annual 2013 Heartland Challenge in Carlisle, Iowa. Regarded as one of the most premier night time endurance races in North America, the Heartland Challenge is a 10 hour cross-country race, ran entirely in the dark for both ATV’s and UTV’s. The event hosts classes for all skill levels, from Pro 4×4 Ironman, Women’s, +40, to a 3 hour challenge for Youth ATV riders.
Twenty minute lap times around the diverse Iowa course attests to its ironman reputation. Sandy rutted sections through the woods, wide open climbs, tricky off-cambers, and night time conditions make conditioning and equipment vital. Watch a lap from the 2011 course here. Add the August Iowa humidity and 10 hours of racing, you have yourself an ironman.
Lazer Star Lights will be onsite all weekend at Heartland showcasing their top of the line LED light bars used by Can-Am’s Factory Race Teams. “Having your lighting set-up dialed before Heartland is critical,” says five time GNCC 4×4 Open champion Bryan Buckhannon. “It’s no fun playing brail on an ironman course at night. When you’re 7 hours into the race navigating through the forest at night, having a proper race lighting set-up makes all the difference.”
Want to see the LED light bars Bryan and the rest of the factory Can-Am teams run on their ATVs and UTVs? Visit the Lazer Star Lights trailer at the Heartland Challenge, August 15th-17th 2013 to see how the lights perform in race conditions.
