JANESVILLE, WI – September 7, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Thor MX would like to congratulate Dean Wilson on his first professional championship. Wilson needed only 11 out of the 12 rounds on the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship schedule to collect his first number one plate at the age of 19. Wilson has been the model of consistency in the 250 class; posting podium finishes in 10 out of 11 rounds and collecting two overall victories along the way.
Wilson’s dominating 1-1 performance last weekend at Steel City Raceway in Delmont, Pa. was more than enough to secure the 2011 250 National Championship. Congratulations, Dean!
