Fourteen-year-old Red Bull-backed phenom Cooper Webb has been on top of the mini racing world of late. Recently winning the AMA Youth Motocrosser of the Year Award, Webb proved himself worthy of the accolade by running away with the race win at the Honda CRF150 Cup at Pala Raceway during the final round of the 2010 AMA Pro Motocross Championships.
The Honda CRF150 Cup was held at the final two stops of the outdoor National series, and showcased some of the top amateur prospects in the game. With $11,000 up for grabs in Honda contingency money and a chance to ride a pro-caliber track, it was a dream come true for all of the kids involved.
With thousands of fans lining the track and thirty eager riders waiting to rip up Pala Raceway, the gate dropped and Webb led the pack into turn one to kick off the 15-minute moto.
Cooper motored on to completely dominate the field, leading wire-to-wire. Taking the checkers with a sizable gap over the second-place rider, Webb served notice that he’ll be a dominant force when it’s his turn to square up in the pro class.
