After a lengthy spell of uncertainty, Dean Wilson will return to Mitch Payton’s Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki race team for 2013. Wilson broke the news via Instagram earlier today, with a picture of himself signing the contract and a new Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki adorned with his “15.”
Further details of Wilson’s contract and race season are still unconfirmed, as what class he will compete is still in the air. Wilson has another year of 250 eligibility, but expressed a desire to move up early and signed with the now-defunct Jeff Ward Racing team to do so. Looking at the photo of the bike, it appears to be a Kawasaki KX450F cloaked in black “250 style” backgrounds. Stay tuned as we find out more.
