On April 27, 1996, Jeremy McGrath came into the St. Louis Supercross with a record 13 consecutive race wins. He was two wins away from a perfect season. But inside the Trans World Dome, Superman fell short of perfection. It was the only blemish in an otherwise dominant season and the rest of the world won’t let him forget it.
