Justin Cooper, an 18-year old freshman at Eastern Washington University, is the youngest driver in the money classes at Spokane Raceway Park. Each Saturday Justin and his family pack up his ’67 Plymouth Satellite and head out to the quarter mile drag strip in Airway Heights. Justin started racing in high school using the car his grandfather bought him at age one. He now races competitively in the Super Street division at SRP and is working up the competitive points ladder towards the championship title.
