Scotland’s Dean Wilson secured his best Monster Energy Supercross finish of the season at Atlanta III, crossing the line in eighth.
The Rockstar Husqvarn man had another great qualifying session, coming away with a top-five position heading into the evening’s racing program.
In 450SX Heat 2, Wilson started off in eighth and he diligently worked his way into a top-five spot with two laps to go. With a hard-fought climb, Wilson ultimately secured a solid fifth in the heat.
In the Main Event, Wilson started off in 12th and he worked his way up to seventh just after the halfway point. While running seventh, Wilson got into a back-and-forth battle that dropped him back to eighth and he maintained that position to ultimately finish eighth.
“My day wasn’t too bad, I ended up with my best finish of the season,” Wilson said. “In the main, I didn’t execute the start like I should have but I made a few passes, got into seventh and Ferrandis got me with five laps to go, so I ended up eighth.
“It’s not a great finish but it was nice to be in the battle. I’m looking forward to Salt Lake and I’m ready to keep improving.”
