Glen Helen Raceway played host to the season opener of the Yamaha Quad-X Series this past weekend and GBC Motorsports was out in full force.
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 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 is a proud supporter of local ATV racing and is pleased to offer riders a chance at winning a set of tires. As part of FNL’s Fall ATV MX Series, GBC Motorsports is providing a set of Bomb Squad MX tires to one lucky raffle winner at each round of the series.
The FNL Fall ATV MX Series at Milestone MX Park in Riverside, Calif. provides a great opportunity for local racers and ATV enthusiasts to ride at a beautiful facility. As an added bonus GBC Motorsports is raffling off a set of their popular Bomb Squad MX tires at each round of the series. Each first moto class winner will automatically be entered into the raffle.
Round 2 of the FNL Fall ATV MX Series took place Saturday, Nov. 19 at Milestone MX Park. GBC Motorsports Sales Representative and former pro ATV racer Kory Ellis was in attendance to award the winner of this round’s raffle. This time around the winner was Jerry Maldonado (#64), winner of the Open 250 class as well as the beginner class. Jerry put together some impressive runs aboard his Triumph Motorsports Raptor 250. Congratulations, Jerry!
Bomb Squad Racing has announced that 2010 AMA ATV MX champion Josh Creamer will be leaving the Bomb Squad WORCS team to race the New England Motocross series for the powerhouse Motorworks/DWT team.
“We’d really like to keep Josh out here racing the WORCS series, but when a factory level team comes knocking it’s hard to stand in the way of that”, says H-Bomb Media guru Wes Miller. “We lost one of our key sponsors a few weeks before the Havasu round, so it’s been quite a scramble getting back on the gas. We worked hard and had things pulled back together… but this deal came along and it’s a really good situation for Josh. We would have loved to finish out the WORCS season , but Josh’s heart is in Motocross, and this is a good resolution all the way around. Winning Primm was icing on the cake for the Bomb Squad. Now we’re going to re-focus on our Baja efforts, the Moore Brothers, and making great television.”
Though Creamer’s roots were in ATV motocross, he adapted quickly to the world of WORCS racing. After a hard fought fourth place finish at the opening round in Taft, Calif., Creamer came back to take the win at the second round in Primm, Nev.
“The Bomb Squad guys were great,” says Creamer. “They really busted their butts to make things happen for me, and I really appreciate it. I want to thank Wes and those guys for being cool about this opportunity with Motorworks/DWT. I look forward to really going after the New England Motocross title. After all, it’s in my back yard.”
