Commemorating Wes Cooley (1932-2015)

I learned late last week that Wester “Wes” Shadric Cooley passed away at age 82. I never met Mr. Cooley but I raced against his son, Wester “Wes” Steven Cooley. The younger Wes Cooley was a 2-time AMA Superbike Champion. I knew about the elder Wes Cooley, however, not just because he was an old racer, but because of his influence on the American Federation of Motorcyclists during a time of change. So this weeks’ story is about the late Wes Cooley and his time at the AFM. Look for the page titled “YP. Wester Shadric Cooley, 1932-2015.”
