Rock Star Energy Husqvarna’s Dean Wilson was the fourth-place qualifier at Round 14 of the AMA Supercross World Championship in Atlanta, and then powered his way off the line in 450SX Heat 1 to grab an impressive second-place start.

He maintained a fast pace behind the leader to secure a runner-up finish and a clean transfer into the Main Event. In the main, Wilson shot off the line to capture a top-five start and he hung with the front-runners early on. He dropped a few positions later in the race but he was able to hold strong for a top-10 finish.

“I was riding really good today, definitely a step up from the last round,” Wilson said. “I was happy with second in the heat race and in the Main Event, I got a pretty good start and was really in the mix of the battle until about halfway and unfortunately just struggled to the end. If we can figure out the second half and just get in the top five, I’d be happy with that.”
