After Ryan Villopoto’s crash, Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey effectively claimed the 2010 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship at the Edward Jones Dome (Round 14 of 17) in St. Louis.

Jeremy McGrath (born November 19, 1971, San Francisco, California) was a Supercross racer and has won a record of 72 (250cc) Main Event wins and captured 7 (250cc) Championships between 1993 to 2000. Prior ro now, McGrath was the first and only rookie to win a Supercross Title back in 1993.

He is often referred to as "Showtime" or "The King" meaning, the King of Supercross. Jeremy now lives in Encinitas, California with his wife Kim and daughters Rhowan and Bergen.

Still active in Supercross, he is racing off-road trucks in the Pro 2WD division of the TORC Series and occasionally tries his hand at Stock Car racing.
