 Eric Cooper

Eric Cooper drives in any class with a payout with his '74 Vega/'78 Kawaski Motorcyle.  His home track is Coles County Dragway but he can also be found racing at Terre Haute Action Track.  He lives in Martinsville, IL.

Eric started racing in '88 in the Street Class at Coles County Dragway probably because of family.  He doesn't remember if he won or lost his first race which would have been in his '66 El Camino with a 285 Chevy engine (which he still has). 

Career highlights include winning his first race at Terre Haute Action Track, Points Champion 2 years, Driver Of The Year and King Of The Track in '11.

The thrill of racing for Eric is winning.  He's most proud of winning Championships. He just hopes he still has highlights to get.

Eric's racing hero is his dad, Larry Cooper.

Of racing, Eric says, "Don't line up to this guy!".
