GBC Motorsports X-Rex Tire

GBC Motorsports is proud to announce that it will be donating a set of its X-Rex tires for the Eichner Family Fundraiser, taking place at Round 2 of the WORCS ATV series in Primm, Nev. this weekend.

The Eichner family is working with WORCS to help raise money for Joan Eichner, wife of ATV racing legend Doug Eichner. Joan has been battling cancer over the past few years and the family is looking to the WORCS community and the ATV racing community as a whole for support. There will be a booth set up with special t-shirts for sale and they will also be accepting donations. Additionally, the fundraiser will be auctioning off donated items, including GBC’s X-Rex tires and autographed jerseys from WORCS pros. For the full story visit the WORCS website.

“Doug was one of my ATV heroes when I started racing and still is today,” says GBC representative Kory Ellis. “He has always been a great role model for ATV racers and the average Joe on and off the track with his never-give-up attitude. I wish the best to him and his family.”

GBC Motorsports’ Dylan Dixon will also be battling once again in the Pro-Am Production class. Coming off of a fifth place finish in a muddy opening round at Glen Helen, Dixon will take on the Nevada desert in more favorable conditions – highs in the low 60’s with clear skies.
