Fast forward to Budds Creek National, the RCH Racing/ Soaring Eagle/Jimmy John?s Suzuki found its way to another 1-1 for the overall and Ken Roczen clinching the 2016 450MX Championship with one round to go. As true champion, Roczen would not cruise through the final round at the Ironman National.

Cooper Webb Crowned 2016 AMA Pro Motocross 250cc Class Champion
At the beginning of the season, no one would have guessed that as we headed into the penultimate round of the 2016 Pro Motocross Championship, STAR Racing Yamaha rider Cooper Webb would be carrying an 81 point lead in the point standings. Despite injuries going into the MX season, Webb put in the hard work all season, recording consistently good finishes that win championships. As the season went on, he gained strength and his momentum turned into dominance.

Cooper Webb claimed the 2016 250MX Championship with 1 round to go at Budds Creek National and earned his first ever Pro Motocross #1 Plate. As Cooper Webb moves to the Factory Yamaha team in 2017, he is now eligible to pick a permanent single digit competition number.

Congratulations to STAR Racing Yamaha and Cooper Webb for a dominant year in both SX and MX!
