Round twelve of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross championships saw an ever confident Cooper Webb claim his third main event win in a row, but not without some drama from the HRC Honda Team, in Arlington, Texas.
Cooper talked about the passes made by HRC Honda’s Ken Roczen and Chase Sexton in a special press conference..
“You never want to be in that position where when you’re getting passed, it was racing. I mean, he didn’t mean to do it, but, you know, getting taken out as always, always sucks,” said Webb.
“So I think for me, I just try to use it as motivation and ground myself to use that energy, I guess to get myself going for the main event. I had just gotten beat and passed by two guys and kind of pulled away from so I was looking for some redemption there and then. Like I said, getting put on the ground, it’s never fun.
“There’s a bunch of different ways that to handle that situation, but I felt like for me, I just tried to use it to, to motivate myself to go there in the main and do the best I could and try to use it to put that pressure on me to go. How it ended up working out how I kind of envisioned in it.
“But you never know how racing it changes all the time. So, like I said I think for me, I just use it as motivation and it worked out really, really well.”
