It was a great night of racing for Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Dean Wilson, who secured a season-best sixth-place finish in the 450SX class at round seven of the AMA Supercross Series in Tampa, Florida.
In Heat One, Wilson grabbed a seventh-place start and he quickly jumped up to sixth by lap two.
He continued to charge his way to ultimately secure a solid top-five transfer. In the Main Event, Wilson got off to a top-10 start and he settled into eighth early on.
He continued to make a push through the second half of the race to ultimately finish with a season-best sixth-place in the Main Event.
“The Main Event went pretty good, I think it was a step in the right direction,” Wilson said. “It’s been pretty tough coming back from injury to a class that’s so stacked but I’ve been pushing through and it’s nice to see a half-decent result. I’m going to use this for next weekend and build off of it and keep it going.”
