GBC Motorsports Race Report: WORCS Round 2
GBC Motorsports’ Pro-Am rider Dylan Dixon finished seventh in Round 2 of the WORCS ATV series at Buffalo Bills in Primm, Nev.
The race began with a dead-engine start which proved challenging for Dixon, who got off to a slow start. Nevertheless he managed to improve his early 12th place position up to eighth by the end of the first lap. By the end of Lap 2, Dixon had worked his way into sixth and was charging on the fifth place rider as things took a turn for the worse.
As Dixon exited the pit section of the track he high-sided and went down. By the time he got back on his quad and going again he had dropped back to 18th. Throughout the remaining laps, however, Dixon continued to fight his way towards the front and never gave up on the race, making a last-second move into seventh just before the checkered flag.
Dixon sits in third place in the points standings after two rounds of racing, with Round 3 slated for March 16-18 at Crazy Horse in Lake Havasu City, Ariz.
The Primm round of WORCS ATV racing was also a special occasion, as the Eichner Family Fundraiser was onsite to help raise money for ATV legend Doug Eichner’s family, whose wife Joan is battling cancer. In addition to selling special t-shirts and accepting donations, the group auctioned off some donated equipment including autographed jerseys from various racers, a set of X-Rex tires from GBC, and a Polaris ATV.
