Cooper 6 for 6 at Round 2

ENGLISHTOWN, NJ – When riders showed up for round two of the Freehold Honda Peewee MX and Youth Quad Series, they were greeted by warm sunshine. After the torrential rains of round one, it was nice to be able to put the umbrellas away. This growing series is for riders as young as 4 and as old as 8, and it is run on the famous Raceway Park track. The Dakota Kessler-prepared track was challenging and fun, and the low-pressure family atmosphere puts the emphasis on fun. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t great racing.

KTM rider Justin Cooper (6) was the weekend’s big winner, taking victories in all six motos he entered and earning the overall victory in the CRF/XR/TTR (7-8), 50cc Open (4-8) and 50cc Stock (7-8) classes. The Coldspring Harbor, New York, rider could be a contender for the Supercross Lites championship in 2016, so remember his name in the future.

The next round will be July 8, so if your youngster is ready to give racing a try, come on down!
