Wilson had a positive start to the day, earning a season-best qualifying position of fourth earlier in the day. In 450SX Heat 1, he got off to a top-10 start and passed into eighth early on.
He continued to charge into the final laps, securing a sixth-place transfer straight to the Main Event. In the main, Wilson found himself back in 14th on the opening lap but he fought his way into the top-10 by lap six. With a smooth and consistent performance, Wilson raced his way to a fourth-straight top-10 finish.
“My qualifier was pretty good and I felt really good on the bike,” Wilson said. “My end result is a little disappointing because I feel like I rode good earlier in the day but I just need to have better race craft. We’ll try again at Atlanta and just keep pushing to be better.”
