EVERY AMA SUPERCROSS CHAMPION EVER: THERE ARE ONLY 24 OF THEM

karsmakerspierrebehndIt may be hard to believe but in the 48 years of the AMA Supercross Championship only 24 men have won the crown. The number discrepancy is caused by Jeremy McGrath’s 7 Championships, Ricky Carmichael’s 5 titles, Ryan Villopoto’s 4, Ryan Dungey’s 4, Bob Hannah’s 3, Jeff Stanton’s 3 and double wins by Jeff Ward, Ricky Johnson, Chad Reed, James Stewart and Eli Tomac.  Honda has won 15 times, Yamaha 11, Kawasaki 11, Suzuki 5, KTM 4, Husqvarna 1 and Can-Am 1. Here is the complete list — starting with Pierre Karsmakers in 1974.
