The GBC Heartland Challenge is held in Carlisle, IA, which is a suburb of the state capital, Des Moines, Iowa, and once again, the Heartland Challenge was held on the final weekend of Iowa State Fair, which is one of the largest in the country and attracts over 1 million visitors each year, and it is less than 20 minutes from the race track

Carlisle, Iowa, the permanent home of the Heartland Challenge saw heavy rains and flooding the week prior to the event and left crews scrambling to repair mud slides and damaged sections of the track before the weekend’s event. Luckily, with a little hard work and perseverance, repairs were made, along with a couple of small changes, and the track was ready to go.
