2018 Season Recap:

Following a successful off-season, many people had high hopes for the Scotsman heading into the 2018 season, however, a crash during qualifying at the season opener in Anaheim left him playing catch-up. Wilson would miss the opening two rounds due to injury, but slowly regained form as the season continued and earned a career best second place finish in the 450SX Class at Indianapolis. Despite his slow start to the season, he used consistency to finish the season seventh in the championship standings.

 

2019 Season Recap:

Wilson had had a rocky offseason, but things fell into place well for him to make the 2019 season and he made the most of it, scoring many impressive results including a third-place finish at Houston. His 6th-place points ranking comes despite the fact that he crashed hard in Denver, causing him to miss the last two races of the season.
