“I am very excited about this statue being displayed for the Anaheim races,” said McGrath. “This race was always my favorite, and I am honored to have something that means so much to me on display to be seen by so many supercross fans.”
Commissioned by Live Nation Motor Sports, Inc., and crafted by artist Steve Posson, the McGrath sculpture will be placed in a prime viewing area of the main entrance to Angel Stadium, where McGrath won a record eight AMA Supercross main events.
“There isn’t a more deserving place to host the Jeremy McGrath sculpture than Angel Stadium,” explained Roy Janson, vice president of operations, Live Nation Motor Sports, Inc. “Angel Stadium became Jeremy’s ‘home away from home’ throughout the ‘90s and into new millennium. Live Nation Motor Sports, Inc., wanted to not only recognize his career but also the fans of Southern California to share in remembering our great champion.”
At a ceremony in July of 2007, the Jeremy McGrath sculpture was unveiled at the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum in Pickerington, Ohio, and added to the Museum’s permanent collection.
In addition to his seven AMA Supercross titles, McGrath retired after the 2003 season with a record 72 main events wins to go along with his 1995 AMA Motocross Championship.
