Bradshaw is Back – Again

Kit Palmer | October 1, 2001

According to a Yamaha press release, Damon Bradshaw has officially signed with the company to compete in the 2001-2002 National Arenacross Series.

“I raced a few local arenacross’ this past winter, did better than I expected and had a blast,” Bradshaw said. “The format, racing 125s and 250s on back-to-back nights, the tracks, the tight racing, it all motivated me to race the entire series. I’m fortunate Yamaha is backing my return because that’s where I had my success as an amateur and factory rider. The only trouble was deciding whether to race two-strokes or four-strokes, Yamaha makes too many stinkin’ YZs!”

Bradshaw will travel with his wife Angela and two-and-a-half-year-old son, Dalton, by motorhome to each round of the National Arenacross Series. Bradshaw will race the 125 and 250cc classes aboard his Wyatt Seals-tuned YZ125 and YZ250 two-strokes.
