Joe Kopp # 3 Triumph mounted , is Back
Joe Kopp is back from retirement in 2010 and put the Triumph on the front row at the Mega Mile in Virginia. Joe had the Triumph out front for two glorious laps. I am sure this is the first time a Triumph has led a Grand National since Gary Scott was the last Triumph hold out , way back in the late 70s. The deep cushion track was the ultimate equalizer and it is a testament to Kopp and the up until now, underpowered Triumph, that they are both competitive under such dire conditions. Joe finished in 12 place and his team mate Shayna Texta on the second Latus Motors Triumph 14th.
