2017 Season Recap:

Wilson came into the 2017 season riding a Yamaha as a full-privateer and finished inside the top 13 at the first round and continued to improve each week. By the fifth round in Oakland, Wilson was offered a factory ride under the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna tent and earned his first top 10 of the year that very weekend. The following weekend, Wilson, a fan-favorite for his positive, never-give-up attitude, captured a season-best finish of 5th overall, and nine additional top 10s for a career-best finish of 8th overall.
