An excerpt from WE WENT FAST & their Jeremy McGrath story on 1986 St Louis, “I made a career doing the things that people thought I couldn’t,” McGrath said. “I was fortunate to be good enough to where that type of race – where I got second –was a miserable race. That’s a weird thing to say.”
"McGrath dominated the ’96 season but, like any sports streak, he caught some breaks. In Seattle he rebounded from a poor start and was passed by Damon Huffman three times for the lead. Attempting a fourth pass, Huffman stalled his bike and couldn’t catch McGrath again. In Indianapolis, Jeff Emig led comfortably at the halfway point and in an unforced error, washed out in a corner. ‘What if’ talk won’t change history but can be fun for discussion. What’s certain is that McGrath was not the best supercross racer on one night in St. Louis."
"“So many things lined up wrong to go racing that day,” Norfolk says. None of the parties involved can offer a detail that specifically caused the outcome of this race, but in a season where nothing could go wrong for McGrath’s team, suddenly there was a series of minute circumstances that, in hindsight, collectively didn’t seem right. The first clue arose long before they arrived in St. Louis." Head to WEWENTFAST.com to read the rest of the story.
