It was a weekend of ups and downs. Straight out of the trailer Dawson liked the course a lot which is definitely a #rarity, but a good sign. At the start of the race he was in last place off the line and actually crashed once before entering the woods. Instead of giving up or giving in, he went to work and after the first lap Dawson had worked his way up to 2nd place just 28 seconds out of 1st. On the second lap he made the pass for the lead and never looked back! 1st Place finish with a time of 1:14:02 !!
