Dixon has been steadily building a solid 2012 racing season and his performances at Glen Helen have established him as one of the region’s most talented up-and-coming racers. In Saturday’s Pro-Am class, Dixon had 2-6 moto finishes, good enough for fourth overall. He fared even better on Sunday with a 2-3 moto finshes landed him on the podium in second overall in Round 7.
Dixon’s successful races are partly a result of his ability to lay down a quick start. He took the holeshot in the second moto on Saturday and was among the top 3 starters in all other motos thanks in part to his GBC Motorsports Bomb Squad MX tires.
Dixon’s impressive weekend of racing pushes him within 12 points of the Pro-Am leader as the series travels to Speedworld MX in Surprise, Ariz. for a special Saturday night event on September 29.
