Monster Energy/Yamalube/Star/Yamaha Racing's Justin Cooper finished just off the podium in both motos and for the overall in his home state race. He grabbed the holeshot in moto 1 and led for four laps before going down in the rollers, but remounted his YZ250F to finish fourth. In moto 2, he once again started at the front of the pack, but fell back a few positions by the time the race ended to capture another fourth place result.
"It was a good day at Unadilla," Cooper said. "We put in solid motos and the bike was good. I ended up crashing out of the lead in the first one and rode tight after that. The second moto I lacked a little pace, but I have my eyes on next weekend already. The small change for moto 2 ended up being better. The team did a great job working with us on a really tough track today."
