ATL 250 Super Spoiler ReportSaturday, February 23, 2013 | 9:45 PM
Take Wil Hahn off the list of “great riders to never win a supercross” by taking his first career W. And he did it in impressive fashion, holeshotting the main event with points leader Dean Wilson right behind him. And then Hahn rode a near flawless race, building a small gap on Wilson lap by lap, until he had about 3 seconds by the halfway mark. Wilson was then in danger of battling for second with Marvin Musquin, but then he stepped it up in the second half of the race, upping his pace and trying to run Hahn down. In lapped traffic, Wilson was able to close in, and then a hard sprint on the last lap brought him within striking distance. But Hahn hung tough and never let the pressure effect him—it was a well-earned win. Wilson and Musquin rounded out the podium, and Blake Wharton held off Jeremy Martin in a race for fourth and fifth.
