AMA Motocrosser of the Year: Cooper Webb

Amateur Motocross

American Honda Motor Company’s Powersports Division announced today that Cooper Webb, a 14-year-old Honda rider, has been awarded the AMA Youth Motocrosser of the Year Award.

Once a year, this honor is granted to the top youth competitor who not only demonstrates an ability to perform on the MX track, but is also judged to be a role model among his young peers.

Cooper has repeatedly proven that he meets all these requirements and so he was selected to receive this prestigious award.

Keith Dowdle (Assistant Manager HRCA) says: "Cooper has been a part of the American Honda/Red Bull JAMS program for four years and during that time he has proven to be a talent both on and off the track.

Cooper has appeared in several American Honda advertisements and in a number of our dealer convention videos. He is well spoken and does a great job of promoting our CRF150R product line.

Manufacturers want riders who are not just fast on the track but can also communicate well regarding the product line, and Cooper is great in both roles. We are very proud of him and we are thrilled that the AMA has recognized him for his skills on and off the track."

Hailing from Newport, N.C., Webb has been racing a Honda Red Bull Racing CRF150R in 2010, and has earned more than 40 national championship plus other accolades since he began his racing career 10 years ago.
