EP. #16 A Nac for Style: How Jeremy McGrath Brought the Nac Nac to Supercross

By Brett Smith

How did you find out about Jeremy McGrath doing the Nac Nac? And what did you think of it at the time?

For me, it was the weekly copies of Cycle News sold on the counter of MotoSports in Clio, MI. I was just a few weeks away from turning 15 when the 1994 Supercross season started. The February 9th issue featured the first published photo of McGrath doing the nac nac. Cycle News named McGrath their Rider of the Month and ran a small black and white photo of the champ swinging his right leg over to the left side of the bike while looking over at the crowd. He had MAC ATTACK on the back of his pants.

This is the audio version of the story by the same title, which was published here back in January 2019. The printed story is a great place to check out some fun nac nac photos.
