GBC Motorsports Kicks Off Dirt Series with Class Victories

GBC Motorsports riders kicked off the opening round of the 2013 Dirt Series with a bang, recording several class wins at the series’ first trip to Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park.

Defending Quad Pro champ Dylan Dixon finished 2-2 for the 2nd place finish on his Bomb Squad MX tires in the Dirt Series opener at Lake Elsinore MX.

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,” Ellis said. “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.”

The Dirt Series started to pick up a lot of steam towards the end of the 2012 season, and that is highlighted by the expanded presence of UTV racing in this year’s opener. GBC Motorsports racers claimed the top spot in three of the four UTV classes, all aboard the new Kanati Mongrel tires.

James Hill piloted his Kanati Mongrels to a clean sweep of the UTV Unlimited class, one of three class wins for the Mongrels in Round 1.

Leading the way was James Hill, who pulled both hole shots with his Mongrels and finished 1-1 to take the first round victory in the UTV Unlimited class. In the UTV Production 1000 class Tommy Scranton finished in 12th after a tough day.

The UTV Production 850 class featured resulted in another class win for GBC, as Nolan Remlinger rode his Kanati Mongrels to victory. Last year’s UTV Prod 700 champion Kayla Smith moved to the 850 class this season, but finished 4th following some mechanical difficulties at Elsinore. Ronnie Anderson added another class win for the Mongrels as he took the UTV Production 700 class victory.

The Dirt Series next heads to the Perris Raceway Vet track on Sunday, April 4th. Learn more about GBC Motorsports tires at www.gbcmotorsports.com and check up on product and racing news by visiting www.facebook.com/gbcmotorsports.
