GBC Motorsports rider Dylan Dixon competed in the opening round of the 2012 WORCS Series at Glen Helen Raceway this weekend.

The Pro-Am ATV racer from Murrieta, Calif. put GBC’s popular Race Rex tires to the test in the first round of the WORCS season. Saturday morning rain had left the WORCS course at Glen Helen a muddy challenge by the time the Sunday afternoon races rolled around.

Dixon overcame a bad gate pick to come out of the start in fourth place. Officials rerouted the riders partway through the race to avoid the messier pro section, but Dylan fought through the conditions to finish in fifth place.

“We are happy to be supporting Dylan this year as he is a great up-and-coming rider with a lot of heart and talent on the track,” says GBC Motorsports representative Kory Ellis.

The next round of the 2012 WORCS ATV Series is scheduled for Feb. 11-12 at Buffalo Bills in Primm, Nev.
