(March 5, 2001 – Burbank, CA) – Kids’ WB!, a leader in kids’ television, and adrenaline-packed 3D-CGI animated series “Max Steel” will reach real extreme levels of adventure when Supercross legend JEREMY MCGRATH ”revs it up” in his first-ever special animated guest appearance. The exciting all-new episode, entitled “The Race,” will air on Saturday, March 10 (8:00 a.m. ET / 7:00 a.m. PT). “Max Steel” is the story of a 19-year-old college student and extreme sports enthusiast who is accidentally infused with nano-technology. In the episode, Max enters the Sahara Run, the most grueling off-road race, to test a new high tech vehicle. During the race, he meets up with Supercross champion Jeremy McGrath — who is being targeted by a vengeful racing opponent. Learning of the driver’s plot to blow up Jeremy and the audience-packed stadium, Max Steel must do some fast-and-steady stunt driving to catch up with Jeremy…will they make it out alive? Fans of Supercross king Jeremy McGrath are amazed and inspired when watching Jeremy on his bike. The first rider in history to own and operate his own team – Team Mazda/Yamaha, Jeremy has become one of the most well-known and well-respected racers of all time. The seven-time American Motorcyclist Association Supercross Champion, Jeremy is currently nominated for ESPN’s Motocross Athlete of the Year. With his signature trick — the “Nac Nac,” Jeremy’s overall career-wins stand at 73 … with the next record coming in at 28.
