Jeff Stanton was a six-time AMA Motocross and Supercross Champion of the 1980s and 1990s. In all, the quietly determined Michigan rider tallied 37 national wins combining victories in AMA Supercross as well as AMA 250cc and 500cc motocross. He won both AMA 250cc Motocross Championships and AMA Supercross Series titles in 1989, 1990 and 1992.
Stanton rode for Honda for the bulk of his career, and earned all of his titles on Hondas. He made his professional debut at the end of 1986 and scored a very respectable seventh-place finish in the 500cc national at Washougal, Washington. By 1987, with backing from Yamaha, Stanton hit the pro circuit full time. In one of the more impressive rookie seasons in AMA racing, Stanton finished inside the top 10 in the 1987 AMA 250cc and 500cc National Motocross Championships and the AMA Supercross Series. He was named Rookie of the Year.
Stanton’s training regime of running, weight training, bicycling and logging countless hours on his home practice tracks made him the fittest rider of his era. The tougher the race, the more he would shine. One needed to look no further than Stanton’s record at Daytona’s brutal Supercross to know just how well conditioned an athlete he was. He would dominate the Daytona Supercross for four years running to become the first to win four straight at the historic venue.
Stanton’s 37th and final AMA national win came in the 500cc national at Millville, Minnesota, in August of 1993. Still one of the top riders Stanton hung up his helmet at the end of the 1994 season. He was just 26 when he retired from racing. Stanton returned to the family farming business in Michigan that he enjoyed and began raising a family with his wife, Sara. He continued to be highly visible at the races as a consultant for Honda.
Stanton will always be remembered for being one of the hardest working riders in the history of the sport. His success stemmed largely from being the most fit and prepared rider on the line, week in and week out. Considered an underrated champion during his era, Stanton’s place in motocross history grew after his retirement, when motocross publications documented the entirety of his career and a number of the next generation of riders pointed to Stanton as their inspiration.
