Growing up in Cold Spring’s Harbor, New York, Justin Cooper’s path to success has been a little different than most. In contrast to many of his competitors, Cooper got a traditional education and even started college before his career took off. In 2017, Cooper had a breakout year, claiming multiple amateur national championships and the prestigious Nicky Hayden Horizon Award at Loretta Lynn’s. With his late success in the amateur ranks, Cooper earned a spot on the Star Racing Yamaha team and will be looking to carry his momentum as he transitions into the pro ranks.
