Over the years, a plethora of top-notch riders has graced the supercross games and thrilled viewers on Supercross TV. Jeremy McGrath, Ricky Carmichael, and James Stewart Jr. are among the legendary racers, but who among them is the best supercross rider of all time? This question is quite debatable among the fans and followers of the games. But when considering the records, milestones, and achievements, Jeremy McGrath stands out as the best.
He is popularly known as the “king of Supercross.” He won 72 Supercross rounds, including 7 Supercross championships. In total, he won 89 titles in his AMA career. He retired in the year 2006 and raced for brands like Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, and Suzuki.
Meanwhile, Ricky Carmichael earned 48 trophies within his ten years career. His fans chose to call him “The GOAT,” which means Greatest of All Time.
James Stewart Jr. is widely accepted as the most speedy racer and he is popularly nicknamed “The Fastest Man on The Planet.” He won 50 Supercross races, 98 AMA outdoor national titles, including Supercross Championship 4 times and FIM World Championship title 5 times.
The records and achievements of Jeremy McGrath are overwhelming.
McGrath took the racing world by storm during the championship in 1990. On Saturday night, March 17, 1990, and with 18,197 fans up in the stands looking on (counting this one) inside Sam Boyd Silver Bowl on the edges of Las Vegas, Nevada, Jeremy McGrath, a young Team Green rider from Southern California rode his Kawasaki KX125 to the top American Motorcyclist Association supercross headliner win of his vocation. After three years, this time on January 23, 1993, and inside Angel Stadium in Orange County, California and before 55,817 fans (counting this one), McGrath set another record by accelerating his Honda CR250 to the main debut class finish of his career.
Since then, McGrath became the rave of the moment. He broke and set several records in a fanciful career which lasted for about two decades. He retired in 2006 after racing for top brands including Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, and Kawasaki.
The supercross racing is never in short supply of intrigues and excitements. Come January 2021, world class riders will take center stage to feed your eyes with mind-blowing strides. But do you think any of the new crop of riders can match Jeremy McGrath’s records?
