                                                    Doug Wilson

 Doug Wilson was an AMA pro from 1973 thru 1976. He was one of the top motocross riders from Michigan in the early seventies. Doug always had the fastest bikes in the state, mostly built by his brother Vince. He raced the Winter AMA series in Florida in 1973, the Daytona Supercross in 1974 and various Nationals as well.  His parents owned K&W Cycle in Utica Michigan, a shop well known for it's involvement in racing. Doug still rides today, mostly trail riding in Michigan on a Yamaha WR 450 with his brother Robert.
