Supercross is a uniquely American sport, one that was born in the USA and has since grown to capture the hearts of motorsports fans the world over. It’s definitely Showtime when the gates drop on a Saturday night Supercross race, and many would maintain that the man who put the capital "S" in Showtime was none other than Jeremy McGrath.
Indeed, McGrath’s overall win record stands big enough to fill a stadium: 72 race wins, two 125-class titles, seven Supercross championships and an outdoor Motocross title. In gathering these accolades, McGrath opened the sport to the entire nation as the general media picked up on his spectacular brand of showmanship, and the name McGrath grew to become synonymous with the sport.
For 2010, Dunlop has commissioned the creation of a Jeremy McGrath Legends poster to benefit the Clayton Memorial Fund and the Road 2 Recovery Foundation. These efforts, which to date have raised more than $50,000, lend financial assistance to injured motorcycle racers—a most worthy means of supporting our sport. This limited-edition, collectible 19 x 26-inch poster is available for purchase through the Cycle News Website at www.cyclenews.com or call 800.831.2220, and also through the Road 2 Recovery Website at www.road2recovery.com or call 480.276.1131.
