Wilson had high expectations coming into this supercross season and although he hasn’t had the results he wanted from the start, he showed his full potential in Anaheim. Wilson was not only on top of the board in 250SX, but he posted the fastest qualifying lap of the day in both the 250 and 450 classes. He easily won his heat race to give him first gate pick for the main event. Wilson rounded the first turn in second place and began hunting the leader. At the 10-lap mark, he put on a charge and got within striking distance when the leader lost the front end and handed the lead over to Wilson. He cruised to his first victory of the season and sits just 12 points back in the standings.
“It means so much to get this win,” said Wilson. “My team and I have been working so hard for this. It took us longer than expected to get here, but this is where we belong and where we intend to stay.”
