Last year, Dylan Dixon found seven podiums in ten rounds on the way to winning the 2012 Pro-Am title. Dixon has moved up to the highly competitive Pro 450 class for the 2013 season and finished 8-7 for the ninth overall spot in Round 1.
GBC Motorsports Race Report: Dirt Series Round 1
GBC Motorsports riders earned several class wins in the season-opening round of the 2013 Dirt Series at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park in Lake Elsinore, Calif.
The Quad Pro class proved to be not only an exciting battle in both motos, but it marked the return to competition for the former ATV pro and current GBC Motorsports Sales Rep Kory Ellis. Battling all day long with defending champion Dylan Dixon, Ellis passed Dixon on the last lap during the first moto to take the Race 1 win. Race 2 ended up much the same, with another late pass by Ellis locking away the Overall win. It was a good start to the season for the pair of GBC riders and featured strong performances on GBC Bomb Squad MX tires.
“The Dirt Series is really run well and it looked like so much fun last year that I decided to give it a go at the opener,” says Ellis. “We’re thrilled to once again be a part of the Dirt Series. GBC Motorsports is proud to support local race series like this because it gives us the chance to interact with the young racers that are going to carry this sport into the future.”
GBC Motorsports: 2012 Year in Review
GBC Motorsports decided to celebrate its successful year in ATV and UTV racing by looking back at the performance of its sponsored riders in 2012.
Kayla Smith made her mark in 2012 with impressive performances throughout the year. Kicking off the WORCS season with a third place finish in the SXS Production 700 class, Smith would go on to land on the podium five more times in six races. With class wins at Race Town 395 and the Honolulu Hills finale, Kayla proved that she is capable of racing at a high level for any racer. The fact that she is 16 years old (and that some of her competitors have been racing since before she was born) makes her talent and vision behind the wheel even more remarkable. Smith finished the series in third place in her class aboard her GBC Dirt Commanders.
Yamaha Quad-X Racing Series
Dylan Dixon was one of the most talked-about up-and-comers on the West Coast racing scene, and his strong performances in the Quad-X Racing Series have something to do with that. Finding the podium in seven out of ten races, Dixon’s run through the Pro-Am class was highlighted by a Round 8 class win at Speedworld MX. Dixon improved on his second place 2011 finish by winning the Pro-Am class in 2012, and is on the verge of breaking into the Pro ranks.
Dixon Wins Quad-X Pro-Am Championship
With a second place finish in this past weekend’s season finale, Dylan Dixon wrapped up the 2012 Yamaha Quad-X Pro-Am Championship.
After finishing second in the opening moto, Dixon pulled the second holeshot moto on his way to another second place finish aboard his GBC Bomb Squad MX tires. The second place overall marked his seventh podium appearance of the 10-round season.
In addition to the Quad-X Series, Dixon recently captured the Pro Quad Championship in the inaugural Dirt Series season and has also been seeing racing success in other series and events throughout the Southwest this year.
GBC Motorsports Race Report: Quad-X Round 6-7
GBC Motorsports’ Dylan Dixon headed to Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, Calif. this past weekend for Round 6 and 7 of the Yamaha Quad-X Racing Series.
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.
GBC Motorsports Report: Dirt Series Round 2
GBC Motorsports traveled to Riverside, Calif. for the second round of the Dirt Series at Milestone MX this weekend.
Dylan Dixon was once again the star of the day, taking both holeshots and winning both motos on his way to another overall win in the Quad 450 Pro class using his GBC Motorsports Bomb Squad MX tires.
Joey Berg made his first go at the Dirt Series at Milestone, posting a win in the Quad 450 Pro-Am class. Berg also took both holeshots and won both motos and is tied for the class lead.

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.
