Bio:

With seven Supercross titles - a feat no other racer in Supercross history has even come close to - two additional 125 Western Region Supercross Championships, one 250 Outdoor National Championship and two FIM World Supercross Championships, most within this spectacular sport feel Jeremy McGrath helped catapult the sport of Supercross into the mainstream.

Truly the most successful rider in AMA Supercross history, with a record 72 250cc Supercross wins, the dirt bike racing icon retired from the sport he helped shape in 2003, only to return in the 2005 season to race select events throughout the 16 week pro Supercross season.

Post Supercross, Jeremy entered the 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 Summer X-Games competing in Step-Up, SuperMoto and Super X garnering Gold, Bronze and Silver medals; he created and produced the Jeremy McGrath Invitational, a never-before-seen, two-day Supercross event featuring a $500,000 purse; penned a best-selling autobiography, Wide Open - with ESPN Mag writer Chris Palmer, culminating with a stint on the New York Times Best Seller List; podium finishes racing the Championship Off Road Racing (CORR) series; became a co-owner of Pole Position Raceway, southern California’s largest indoor public carting facility and became the proprietor of So Cal’s Thing Valley Ranch.

In 2007, post-retirement brought about yet another exciting race challenge - Late Model Stock Car racing as part of Dale Earnhardt, JR's, prestigious JR Motorsports Team. Jeremy raced 5 stops of the 2007 series.

In 2008, another 4-wheel opportunity presented itself - a factory ride with one of Championship Off Road Racing's (CORR) premiere teams, Baldwin Racing.  Jeremy raced all eight 2-day stops of the 16 race series, April through November. In 2009, Jeremy raced the entire TORC series as part of the Greaves Motorsports team and in 2010 is back as part of the Greaves Motorsports team running the vastly competitive Pro 2 class.
