McGrath To Race Steel City?

One of the more interesting rumors we’ve heard lately is that Jeremy McGrath will make an appearance aboard a Factory Honda 450 at Steel City…so that he can prevent Chad Reed from claiming his AMA number two plate for ’05.

Swap spotted the former champ while testing the RM125 at Cahuilla Creek this week, and said that Jeremy has slimmed down quite a bit, and looks to be in excellent shape. MC is also reportedly scheduled to do some outdoor testing with the Honda crew next week.

Will MC continue his recent string of strong performances with yet another one at Steel City? Will he score points and hang onto the coveted number two? We’ll wait and see…
