Yamaha’s Cooper Webb Building Momentum for Muddy Creek

Hometown Crowd Has Webb Excited

Cypress, CA – June 22, 2017Round 5 of the 2017 AMA Pro Motocross Championship, the Tennessee National, is on Saturday at Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, TN, and, after Monster Energy/Yamalube/Chaparral/Yamaha Financial Services/Yamaha Factory Racing Team rider Cooper Webb’s top-five performance last Saturday at High Point, he’s looking to keep his momentum going this Saturday.

Cooper had the best weekend of his rookie 450MX season a week ago, and about racing this Saturday at the Tennessee National, he said, “The next two rounds coming up are two of my favorites of the series, but I have to give Muddy Creek the nod because of the hometown crowd. I grew up racing this track, and the fans always show up big-time for this event! My first-ever professional win was there, and I hope to add to that this weekend!”
