Didn't they ride the 360 kitted yz250's in 92, or did they coincide with the 500's in '91. For the life of me I can't remember. I think Larry Brooks rode the 360 also, and maybe Dubach. Man that might of been '90. Someone help me with this one.

Dubach and Shaun Kalos rode the Noleen kitted 360's in 1989 for factory Yamaha in the 500 class. In 1991 Bradshaw and Dubach ran the WR500 for the factory team. I believe Brooks (1992 ) and Kalos (1991) ran the 360 for Team Noleen.

Thanks, I hate forgetting my MX history, but that was a few years ago.
And Shaun Kalos, there's a name I haven't heard in a while.

Dubach never raced the WR, they only built one for Damon,

He raced one long enough to get his picture taken. That is the Dr. in 1991. He was 12th overall in the 500 class during the 1991 but I definitely have more memories of Bradshaw than Dubach that year in the 500's.

Could that be Mammoth or some other one off race? I do not think the pic is from the 1991 500 USGP because I doubt he would have ran his usual #15 since Bradshaw had to switch #'s and had #69 for the GP. It kind of looks like it could be Mike Healey over Dougs left shoulder on the KTM (#111?). Healey only raced one 500 national in 1991 at Washougal. Although Healey would haven been back for the USGP as well.

I just took a look at a 1991 500 MX recap video and Dubach was on camera at Broome Tioga and Steel City and although the video was a bit grainy it sure looked like Doug was on a WR.

MXA built a WR500 and used the tank and shrouds off the YZ250. Looked good and with some tuning from Pro-Circuit they actually got the death rattle out of the engine. Twas' sweet.

Smail and Brooks rode the 360's as well for a season. Team mates had a great duel at washougal on those bad bays too!

Dubach rode a 360 WR at the Greeley Colorado Supercross. He and a few other guys like Charlie Bogard and a young Jeff Emig showed up there once in awhile. Anyway Dubach was there on the 360 and I talked with him a little bit about it. This had to be 1990 or 1991.

Lots of chest protectors in those races! Necessary for roost protection.

I would have loved to have watched a 500 race, the power and sound by the best racers would have been epic.

I had one and loved it. Felt like a 500 engine in a very small frame. At least it did to me coming off euro bikes all my previous machines.

Bradshaw was so bad ass, the fact that he even one a moto on that air hammer in the heat is amazing.
