June 7, 2021
Preston, ID - DirtHalo Racing continued racing this past weekend this time in a new location for WORCS Racing at the Famed Cache Valley MX Park in Preston, Idaho. Its been two months since Worcs has held a race and DirtHalo's Dakota Hibler was ready to line up against the Women B for the first time this season. A low turnout for the weekend added the importance of points and as the Women B class lined up the three ladies would battle on the first lap. Jordan Murray #999 took the holeshot and led Dakota out into the corn fields with Marcia Garcia #657 close behind the two. Dakota spun out and ended up falling back to third before #999 spun out and was unable to get her quad running again. Dakota then had to chase down #657. Dakota was able to gain about 14 seconds and close the gap to 13 sec before lap three but then spun out again and was unable to regain enough time to compete for the top spot. Dakota finished second on the day and moved to second overall in the Women B class on the season. The top four spots are separated by a mere 17 points.
On Sunday Dakota lined up with three other men in the Production C class and was able to push hard but unable to catch the top three ending her podium streak in class and dropping to fourth on the day. Dakota is sitting second overall in Production C class as we head into the summer break. Second half of the season kicks off in Wickenburg, AZ at the beginning of Sept. and the final few months of the season are going to be exciting and every point will count in both divisions.
