Dean Wilson goes 450cc with Jeff Ward in 2013
News Friday 19th October 2012
Wilson joins the Jeff Ward Racing team in its sophomore season but really, the squad has been working together for years under a different title. “I got into racing because I love motocross,” said team co]owner Mike Kranyak. “I enjoy the challenge, and I believed that I could build a team that would be the best in the world. We accomplished our goal by winning the Supercross championships with Chad Reed and James Stewart in the past, and now our new challenge is to do the same with Dean Wilson.”
“I’m thrilled to join the Jeff Ward Racing Team,” said Wilson, from his new home in Clermont, Florida. “I had a few offers to choose from but joining JWR was a no brainer. I wanted to stay on Kawasakis, and the chance to work with Jeff Ward was an opportunity that I couldn’t pass up. The guy is a legend!”
Wilson will race a factory supported Kawasaki KX450F, tuned by respected technician Oscar Wirdeman, who helped guide Chad Reed and James Stewart to the 2008 and 2009 Supercross Championships, respectively.
