Dean Wilson is easily one of the most popular racers in our sport, thanks to his past race wins and championship of course, but mostly because of his easy going personality and awesome sense of humor. Though the Scot finds himself without a factory ride entering the 2019 race season, he seems to be resting easy knowing that he has a great group of people surrounding and backing him. Recently, Wilson had a YouTube video go viral, amassing nearly five million views. In it, he has a professional makeup artist make him look 80 years old, and he has some fun at Fox Raceway aboard his motorcycle. We got the behind-the-scenes scoop of the making of the Grandpa Earl video, as well as what’s going on with number 15’s race program for 2019.
