 2021 Season Recap

Cooper returned to the 250SX Western Regional Class in 2021 for the second year in a row in search for his first 250SX Class title after finishing 2nd in 2020. Cooper accomplished his mission in convincing fashion, taking the overall championship with 194 points, 13 points ahead of second place, Hunter Lawrence. Cooper captured three race victories and two other podium finishes with his best performances coming out of the unique Supercross track at Atlanta Motor Speedway where he finished on the podium all three races and secured a race win. Cooper then shifted focus to the outdoors in the 250 Class of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series where he also registered his best season on record and finished runner-up to Jett Lawrence in a tight finish, falling short of capturing both championships by only six points

 2022 Outlook

Cooper remains with Monster Energy/Star Racing/ Yamaha in 2022 as he looks to secure another 250SX Class championship title. Cooper is coming off of the best year of his career so far, momentum is certainly on his side heading into 2022 and he should be considered a favorite for podium finishes every weekend. However, it will not come easy as the talent pool depends in the 250SX Class with returns and promising young rookies
