The world champion racer will be putting on his racing helmet for the last time at his very own Jeremy McGrath Invitational which will take place October 6-7 in Carson, California.
He says it will be hard to top the rush he gets from racing, which he describes this way: Take the biggest roller coaster in the world and you dont even come close to what it feels like the adrenaline, you just cant replace it.
McGrath may get a drug-like buzz from racing but says he doesnt know of any Supercross guys who use actual drugs before a contest.
Plus, he says everyone stays away from steroids because they make you all big, buff and swollen in a sport that relies heavily on agility and speed.
As he puts it, You gotta keep the blood flowing. The guys are less physical and more training fanatics. Its not about muscle its about heart and talent.
The Jeremy McGrath Invitational will air October 22 on NBC.
