Justin Cooper retains 240SX West points lead despite trying night at Glendale
Justin Cooper
Justin Cooper endured a tough night at round four of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross with the current championship leader just coming out of the round with his leaders Red Plate secured.

After a heavy crash in qualifying the Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing rider didn‰Ûªt get a great start and then crashed after the sand section on the first lap of the opening race.

He lost valuable time trying to get back in the race, but he didn‰Ûªt give up and was able to work his way into 17th to salvage some valuable points in the Triple Crown format.

The New Yorker got off to a much better start in the second race and got into the lead early, but unfortunately it was more of the same. He crashed once again, this time in the right hander before the whoops. Cooper got back in the race and charged from the back to cross the line ninth.

He was able to redeem himself, though, in the final Main Event of the night grabbing another great start,he quickly took the lead and held onto it for the 10-minute-plus-one-lap race to end the night ninth overall.

"It was a roller coaster night in Glendale. The track conditions were really tricky and traction was very hard to maintain. I was able to come back with the win in the third Main and hold onto the points lead. We‰Ûªre going take the positives and learn from the mistakes and move on to next weekend and go for the win again," Cooper said.

Cooper leads teammate and reigning champion Dylan Ferrandis by three points heading into Oakland‰Ûªs fifth round this weekend.
