After almost 25 years away, Jeremy “Showtime” McGrath is making a return to Kawasaki as a brand ambassador. Kawasaki Motors Corp. made the announcement on November 20th that McGrath would be representing the company as an ambassador. McGrath, a seven-time Monster Energy Supercross champion, will join Kawasaki’s prestigious Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green to promote the complete line of Kawasaki products, which include the Jetski, Mule, KX, Ninja, and Terix brands.
“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 in a statement last Thursday. “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.”
In 1990, the supercross star earned his first win for Team Green while riding a Kawasaki KX125 for Team Green. In addition to promoting Kawasaki, he will also mentor other members of Team Green and other profressional factory supported riders. He will pass on advice garnered from the several years as a top player in supercross.
“Kawasaki is excited to have Jeremy back,” said Chris Brull, Kawasaki’s Director of Marketing. “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.”
More than three successful decades, the ideals behind Team Green are still the same. Team Green aims to support supercross riders at all levels, while ensuring that every person who rides a Kawasaki is at home with the family of Kawasaki family of riders, owners, dealers, and technicians all over America. Team Green maintains great trackside support at amateur motocross events and off-road events across the U.S. Kawasaki hopes that McGrath’s addition to the Kawasaki family will strengthen its long reputation for launching champions.
