Top Ten finish at Daytona Supercross for Dean Wilson!

It was another long night for Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s British Racer Dean Wilson at the Daytona Supercross last night, taking a detour to the last chance qualifier (LCQ) after suffering a late-race crash in the heat.

He was able to secure his third-straight LQC win to claim a spot on the 450SX Main Event starting line. With a not-so-favorable gate pick in the Main Event, Wilson didn’t get the best start as he rounded the opening lap in 15th but he pushed himself into a top-10 battle within the first few laps. Battling a tough Daytona track, Wilson ultimately secured a season-best finish of 10th.

“My night was a bit eventful,” Wilson said. “I was in qualifying position in the heat race and I tried to make a pass in the last corner and crashed in the rhythm section before the finish, so I had to go to the LCQ. I was far outside gate in the main and didn’t get a good start at all but I just plugged away and ended up with a top-10. It’s not great but it’s a starting point and we’ll just try to build and get better from there.”
