Los Angeles – April 24, 2008 – Loop’d Network, a next generation social network for sports, today announced the launch of seven-time AMA Supercross champion Jeremy McGrath’s fan community at www.jeremymcgrathlive.com. The community is a central archive of exclusive content from McGrath’s own personal video archives and includes blogs from the champ himself, video updates, photos, event coverage and industry news.
“Jeremy McGrath is the king of supercross and his new fan community is a great addition to the Loop’d Network,” said Scott Tilton, chief executive officer of Loop’d Network. “Jeremy’s online community gives fans a direct connection to Jeremy for exclusive content, provides exceptional value to his sponsors and helps his legacy live on for years to come.”
Starting this weekend, McGrath makes his debut in Championship Off Road Racing (CORR) as a factory-backed truck racer under the Baldwin Racing tent. Racing gets underway with a special Press Day on Friday, April 24th at the Pomona Fairplex, and full-blown race competition goes Saturday, April 26th and Sunday April 27th.
Although retired from full-time Supercross racing, a bronze statue of McGrath, originally unveiled at a ceremony in July 2007 at the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum in Pickerington, Ohio, was on display at the main entrance to Angel Stadium, where McGrath has won a record eight AMA Supercross main events during his career.
“I couldn’t be happier with my new community on Loop’d,” said McGrath. “I can interact with my fans and let them know what I’m up to and where I might be racing or appearing. Loop’d has the largest online community of Supercross fans, so it made sense for me to re-launch my site on Loop’d where I can easily build my community and stay connected with my fans.”
