Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha’s Justin Cooper topped the 250SX qualifying time sheets at the Atlanta Motor Speedway for round fourteen of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross championship.


Heading into the 250SX Qualifying opener, the track conditions were the complete opposite to saturdays wet weather, with a decent dry track to get stuck into. Troy Lee Designs Gas Gas’s Pierce Brown hit the deck hard in Q2 causing him to catch his leg and drag himself off the bike. A collected Justin Cooper topped the time sheet in qualifying, with Cameron Mcadoo just behind, as Hunter Lawrence chased them down to round out the top three 250SX.

Kyle chisholm crashed out hard and ghosted his bike into on coming riders, luckily without hitting anyone. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Jason Anderson grabbed the P1 spot, with Ken Roczen just behind and with his team mate Sexton rounding up the top three 450SX riders. Dean Wilson put a good time in especially after last Saturdays mess up in the LCQ.
