You look at Damon Huffman and can't help but wonder if this is really the kid people say has the makings of a motocross champion. He doesn't look the type. In fact, Huffman isn't the type. At 6 feet and about 135 pounds, he is not what anyone would call well built. He is baby-faced and his manner is subdued. "Damon is 17, he looks like he's 12 and he's a very polite and shy young man," said Joe Colombero, sports promotion manager for Team Suzuki.

It happened again. Jeremy McGrath looked like Clark Kent on two wheels. McGrath, from Sun City, made it three for three in the AMA Supercross Series on Saturday night at Anaheim Stadium, winning the 20-lap main event. Again. McGrath was followed to the finish by Acton's Damon Huffman on a Kawasaki, Honda teammate Steve Lamson of Pollock Pines, Calif., and Mike LaRocco of South Bend, Ind., on a Suzuki.

Jeremy McGrath, needing only to finish ahead of Mike Kiedrowski to clinch the Camel Supercross Series championship--worth $100,000--started Saturday night's race like a man with something to prove. The 21-year-old from Murietta, a rookie in the 250cc class, shot from the starting line, slowing only to maneuver his Honda over the bumps, and soaring over the jumps laid out over the Rose Bowl course.

Jeremy McGrath won his first supercross race in 1993 in Anaheim and kept right on going, winning five of the last six American Motorcycle Assn. Supercross Series championships.

But in front of an announced sellout of 45,050 where, for once, the rock pile beyond the outfield wall didn't look out of place, McGrath finally found his match. Several of them, in fact. Ezra Lusk of Bainbridge, Ga.
