Prior to the incident, Cooper held the second position in the 250 Class championship. Fortunately, he reassured his well-being and announced via social media that he was able to return home today.
Justin Cooper – “The past 24 hours have been pretty scary,” he wrote. “As most know, I crashed yesterday in the 2nd round of qualifying. My chest and neck got crushed by the handlebars. My throat started to close up in the Alpinestar medical unit and I was immediately transported to the nearest hospital. I spent the night there and am headed back home to Florida now to start my recovery. I really appreciate all of the messages and support. Also a special thank you to my in-laws for getting Jillian to me asap yesterday and for waiting around on me to get discharged so that we could fly home today”
