Bank of America Challenge Championships at Lone Star Park
Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas will host a national championship, the 2015 Bank of America Challenge Championships on November 6 and 7.
The annual event for American Quarter Horse racing is similar to the Breeders' Cup as regional qualifiers from racetracks across the United States, Canada and Mexico compete in six major championships. Lone Star Park has hosted the event four times; last year's host track was Prairie Meadows in Altoona, Iowa. Los Alamitos, Evangeline Downs, Sam Houston Race Park and Fair Grounds have also held the Bank of America Challenge Championships.

Regional qualifiers include Jake Gold Br, Daytona B, Mr Big, Sign of Corona, Rockin Disco, Eyesa Famous Eagle and Rocketair. The winner will earn a berth to the $600,000 Champion of Champions (G1) at Los Alamitos in December.
