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.

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.
