The Coldwater, MI native dominated motocross and Supercross in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. In 1989, 1990 and 1992, Stanton won both the AMA 250cc Motocross and AMA Supercross Series titles — six championships in all. During that same stretch, he was part of three American victories in the prestigious Motocross des Nations, including a stunning recovery from a fall to first in the final moto of the 1991 event that has become the stuff of legends. Stanton began 1989 as an understudy to Honda team leader Ricky Johnson. After the 2012 inductee was injured, Stanton won 5 of 7 events to take his first of three 250cc titles. In just eight seasons, Stanton amassed enough wins to rank in the Top 10 all-time in AMA Supercross, 250cc Motocross and 500cc Motocross. He was also the first rider to win the brutal Daytona Supercross four straight years. Stanton was named AMA Pro Athlete of the Year in 1990 and retired in 1994. He was inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame in 2000.
