Dean Wilson is making the most of his current privateer status. The popular and talented racer has always connected with audiences through his social media channels, but lately, he's expanded his reach by creating a YouTube channel that shows his lighthearted side and skill on the bike, including the instant classic "Grandpa Earl."

In the latest video on Wilson’s YouTube channel he discusses the past twelve months, from his success at overseas Supercross races in the offseason to the repeat injuries he endured during the 2018 season, including torn ACLs in both knees, a damaged shoulder, and ligament injuries to his thumb. To hear everything listed out in order makes his triumphs, including a career-first 450 SX podium, that much more impressive.
