YAMALUBE STAR RACING YAMAHA’S COOPER WEBB TAKES THE OVERALL WIN AT THE MXGP IN CHARLOTTE
Cooper Webb and Mitchell Harrison competed in MX2 class, at the penultimate round of the MXGP series, which was held in Charlotte, NC. Rain cancelled Friday’s usual schedule, so qualifying was moved to Saturday, before the evening’s main event. The North Carolina native, Webb, came close to a win in the first race when he was about to make a pass for the lead, but got held up as the leader went down. He ended up second. A bad start set him back in the second race, but with the crowd cheering him on, he made a spectacular come-back and took the race win. Webb took the overall win; finishing his 250 motocross career on a high. Mitchell Harrison came from a seventeenth place start, in the first race, to finishing ninth. Harrison backed up his first result, with a seventh place finish and took seventh overall. Mitchell Harrison will compete in the final round of the series, which will be held at Glen Helen on September 10 & 11.
