Anaheim, Calif. – March 14, 2013 – 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  Motorsports Park. 

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.
