Fire Power Honda has just wrapped up the penultimate round of the 2023 Monster Energy Supercross series in Denver, Colorado, with some success. Dean Wilson was the squad’s sole representative inside of Empower Field – the event was a 250SX West stop and therefore Max Anstie was not competing, he has prepared himself for tomorrow night’s final round.
Wilson made more steps aboard his CRF450R in the daytime, as he qualified in fifth place and boosted expectations for the night program. Ninth was where he was positioned at the end of the first lap and, just as he does each week, he made immediate progress. ’15’ eventually clawed his way into sixth by the time that the checkered flag waved, which was a season-best result and yet another reminder of the progress that has been made beneath the ‘red’ tent. The seventeen points that were taken via his sixth keep him in contention for eighth in the championship standings too. Tenth is where he currently sits, but eighth is just nine points away.
The 2023 Monster Energy Supercross finale in Salt Lake City, Utah, is tomorrow night and the second 250SX Showdown of the season will be run within the confines of Rice Eccles Stadium. Anstie will continue his bid for second in 250SX East, as Wilson continues to strive for eighth in 450SX and top 5 on night.
Dean Wilson: “Denver was a positive night for us, but I know that we could achieve even more with a better start. I am really happy with the progress that the team has made though – this is a testament to everyone’s hard work and dedication. Let’s see what the final round in Salt Lake City brings!”
Max Anstie: “No matter what, its been a great season with the team. I am focused on finishing as high as I can and I know what I need to do. Looking forward to this weekend”
Martin Davalos: “I am proud of everyone, this is our second full season as a team and its extraordinary for me to be a part of it. I am constantly learning and look forward to tomorrow and our future”
