Announcing his last career AMA Pro Motocross race at the 12th round of the AMA Pro Motocross Season, Dean Wilson closed out a successful career on a positive note with a top-10 overall finish in the 450MX class.

Coming through the pack in both motos, the 32-year-old put forth a valiant effort amidst the intense heat to earn 13-9 moto finishes on the day.

“My day was alright,” Wilson said. “My goal was to be top-10 in both motos and unfortunately, a second corner pile-up was not ideal. I had to come from the back to 13th again. Second moto, I had another bad start and had to come through to ninth. It wasn’t great, but it was my last American Pro Motocross moto of my career and it was a hot one! I won’t forget this one, that’s for sure. The track was gnarly. I’m very grateful to the team for being behind me these six years. I’m happy to be safe and to now focus on Motocross of Nations.

“Riding off after my last moto I am content with my decision to finish up with AMA Pro Motocross. I can literally barely walk after the race due to my bad knee. So thank you all. More exciting things are coming,” The Scotsman concluded.

Wilson finishes his career with a 250cc championship in 2011 and highest placing of 4th in the 450 standings in 2017.
