In addition to a pair of AMA Loretta Lynn’s Amateur Championships and nine major amateur motocross championships, Justin Cooper took home the AMA Arenacross Lites East Championship and was awarded the Nicky Hayden AMA Motocross Horizon Award before his amateur exit.
Following that impressive amateur career, Justin Cooper went pro at his home race in Upstate New York, Unadilla in 2017. Cooper really turned heads his first full rookie season, by finishing third in the 2018 AMA 250MX championship. Returning in 2019 with the Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing Team, Cooper challenged the field for a 250SX East title and 250MX championship. His 2019 season efforts earned him a coveted seat on the 2019 MXoN U.S.A. team competing on the world stage. Cooper continues to improve his results and plans to be a title contender in 2020.
