MXA FIRST RIDE VIDEO: DAMON BRADSHAW’S PERSONAL GAS GAS XC300
Damon Bradshaw is the winningest rider to never win a major AMA National Championship. He did earn the 125 East Supercross title in 1987, but that is a Regional Championship, not a national title. Damon was no slouch and was always a threat to win. He won 19 AMA Supercrosses, six AMA 250 Nationals and four AMA 125 Nationals. Most amazing, Damon Bradshaw won nine Supercross events in 1992, only to lose the 1992 AMA Supercross Championship by three points to Jeff Stanton. Stanton won three events to Bradshaw’s nine, but Damon lost 23 points to Stanton at the Indianapolis round when he crashed. Damon was dropped from Team Yamaha at the end of 1996 and raced one final season as a privateer for Manchester Honda—winning his first 250 National in four years at Mt. Morris in 1997. At the end of the 1997 season, he retired from Pro racing and moved over to race Monster trucks from 2007 until 2017, driving the “Air Force Afterburner” in Monster Jam.
