Team UXC won the 10-Hour Heartland Challenge, held August 20 in Lewisburg, Tennessee. Michael Swift, Cliff Beasley and another guest rider took the Pro Utility class championship on Bighorn 2.0 tires by completing 31 laps in 10:16:10 hours.
In third place after the start, Beasley gained the front spot by the third lap. His teammates kept extending UXC’s lead, so much so that they lapped their entire class at least twice. Their finish was good for seventh place overall at the event, and UXC was the only utility ATV team to crack the overall top ten.
Swift was pleased with his team’s performance and with their Maxxis tires: "We ran a ten-hour race flawlessly. Everything came together and worked as planned. The terrain was hard-packed for the most part with no mud and a few ruts in the woods. Our Bighorn 2.0s worked really well and still looked new after the ten-hour race, other than the podium burnout!"
Maxxis congratulates all the members of Team UXC on their victory and thanks them for proving once again that champions ride Maxxis.
