Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Dean Wilson secured a top ten finish at the Daytona Supercross on Saturday evening, despite having a crash with his team mate.

With a top-five start in 450SX Heat one, Wilson established a good rhythm to secure a solid top-five transfer. In the Main Event, Wilson grabbed a top ten start and he made quick progress to overtake eighth by the second lap.

Wilson happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and he got caught up with his teammate and another rider and went down, dropping him back to fourteenth. He steadily worked his way back to eleventh within a couple of laps and he made another late-race push to secure a top ten finish in the end.

“My night started off pretty good,” Wilson said. “I was in sixth for a few laps and Malcolm was behind me but I figured I didn’t want to hold him up so I kind of let him by and I think he grabbed the front brake on the turn in the tuf block or something and he fell, then I fell.”

“I almost saved it and then Jason [Anderson] hit me from behind. I was the last guy to get up and I had to make a bunch of passes and lost a bunch of time. It was a bummer but we’ll keep plugging away and moving forward.”
