“I’m aiming for another top 10 in standings at the end of the year for the modified, and in the midget, my goal is to win a race,” Wilson said. “I’m expecting to run in the top-five each week! We’re really going to be stepping it up from last season; we’re back to a two car team again, which is how we were in 2016 where I was very successful, so I’m hoping it’s going to bring back that luck again!”
Last year, Wilson placed 10th in the OSCAAR Modified standings after scoring his first career top-10 at Sauble Speedway.
My thoughts looking back on the 2017 season are nothing but positive things,” he said. “We ran a three car team this year, had some solid finishes and have a good idea on things to improve on for 2018. We, as a team, learned a lot about the Modified all year, and showed improvement each week, the confidence is up. We left the three biggest races in Ontario short track racing with our car in one piece and no damage.
“And in the midgets we weren’t as focused on, it was more for fun. We had a few solid finishes and a pair of thirds; for the limited amount of starts we had with the Midget we did great, and the Pro Midget we only had two starts, we sold it just before Frostoberfest at Flamboro, so I’m pretty excited to see that car on track and hopefully performing great like it did in 2016 when we finished second in points with it!
“But getting back to the Modified, I learned not to drive it like the midgets, and that I was a little too conservative of the car. I can be a lot more aggressive than what I was. We’ve got the car to win races, now it’s just about getting the driver in the right mindset too!”
