Winning the AMA 250cc Supercross Championship is the stuff of dreams. It requires speed, strength, consistency, determination, and skill. Winning the championship seven times in eleven seasons is pure fantasy-unless you're Jeremy McGrath.Hailed as the greatest supercross competitor in the world, McGrath has always had a way with wheels and an obsession with speed. Jeremy's father Jack dubbed him "Showtime" during his BMX competition days and the name stuck through his professional career. McGrath loved to show off, and his style and charisma helped bring supercross to the attention of the mainstream media. He brought major sponsors to the sport-MCI and Budweiser-and made appearances on David Letterman and Jay Leno.Jeremy McGrath: Images of a Supercross Champion uses spectacular photography from the archives of Dirt Rider magazine to trace McGrath's rapid-fire racing career, from his early days in BMX through to his retirement and beyond. Written by McGrath's lifetime friend and motorjournalist Ken Faught, the book includes fresh details on McGrath's rocky relationship with Honda, an insider's take on the deal that put him on a Suzuki for 1997, and the story of how the Chaparral Yamaha team was assembled.About the AuthorKen Faught is the editor-in-chief of Dirt Rider, the world's largest off-road motorcycle magazine. He rode the International Six Days Enduro in 1994, won several amateur titles, and is an accomplished hill climber. He resides in Corona, California.
