ATR / Zakowski Motorsports back to defend Heartland Challenge Title

Published on August th, 2011


It’s that time of year again, when everyone at Zakowski Motorsports spends countless hours going over every nut and bolt in preparation of the annual Heartland 10-Hour Challenge in Carlisle, IA, where the team hopes to defend their Pro-4×4 title.

With huge success last year, Zakowski Motorsports is happy to announce that they will once again be joining forces with All Terrain Research as title sponsor for the grueling event.  ATR, an industry leader in high quality components, will make sure that these machines have what it takes to tackle the ten hour endurance event

“We have been involved with ZMS’ program both on and off the track for a little over 2 years now and we couldn’t be happier with the relationship.  Everyone involved carries the utmost professionalism and we really couldn’t be more excited to get back out there and show that these riders, combined with our products can get the job done,” stated Jeremy Bratcher, president of ATR. heartland_8167

Not only will ATR be back, but the team will remain strong, with title holders Zac Zakowski and Kevin Trantham returning from last year.  Zac and Kevin typically follow the GNCC’s where Kevin has gone undefeated thus far to defend his 4×4 Lites championship and Zac has been stirring the pot in 4×4 Open with the top riders.  Completing the team for this year will be Andrew Langston of Cutler, IN, another 4×4 Open frontrunner.

“I am extremely excited to not only be heading to the Heartland, but also having ATR there with us again.   We have an amazing crew with us this year and I’m happy to be able to add Andrew to this family.  Andrew is a great rider and I know that he will be fully committed to keeping the title in our corner,” stated Zakowski.

The race will be taking place on August 20th, so stay tuned for the results.  Make sure to stop by the tent to talk with the racers and ATR reps on hand and remember to keep your fingers crossed.
