While rightly much has been made of Ricky Carmichael’s recent triumphs on the Supercross and motocross tracks of America, it is always wise to remember our past heroes, even when they are not that far in the past. Live Nation commissioned artist Steve Posson to craft a bronze statue of Jeremy "Showtime" McGrath, the winningest racer in AMA Supercross premier class history, with 72 wins and seven championships at the close of the 20th century.
