Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. announced Wednesday that seven-time Monster Energy Supercross champion Jeremy McGrath returns to Kawasaki Team Green as a brand ambassador for the entire product line, including the KX, Mule, Ninja, Jetski and Teryx brands.

McGrath claimed his first Supercross victory aboard a Kawasaki KX125 in 1990 while racing for the Kawasaki Team Green program. McGrath will serve as a mentor to the Kawasaki Team Green and professional factory supported riders, offering advice from his many years at the top of the sport as well as carrying out his promotional duties.

“As the top grass roots racing program in the industry, I am excited to reunite with the team and do everything I can to promote Kawasaki and help all of the Team Green riders,” said McGrath.

Jeremy McGrath Rejoins Team Green“During my racing career and even since retirement, I always kept my eye on Team Green for the next stars of our sport. At this stage in my life, giving back to the sport I love is a top priority, and for that I feel Kawasaki is the best fit.”

“Kawasaki is excited to have Jeremy back,” said Kawasaki Director of Marketing Chris Brull. “For him to come back to his roots and begin another relationship with Kawasaki truly is a complement to our products and brand. It is very fitting that Jeremy will join Ryan Villopoto, a four-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion in specific promotions of KX bikes.”

The 43-year-old Californian became the first rookie to ever win an AMA 250cc SX Championship back in 1993. He followed that up with six additional 250cc titles (1994, 1995, 1996, 1998, 1999 and 2000). McGrath also earned the 125cc titles in 1991 and 1992.

In his AMA Supercross and Motocross career, McGrath had earned 89 wins, including a record 72 in the 250 class.
