The uber-talented Kody Kopp transformed his impressive lineage as the son of 2000 Grand National Champion Joe Kopp into a secondary note rather than his primary claim to fame by winning the 2022 Parts Unlimited AFT Singles title. The latest in a long line of flat trackers hailing from the Northwest, the Washington native first started riding when he was just three-and-a-half and was racing a few months after that. Following a spectacular amateur career culminating in the 2020 Nicky Hayden AMA Flat Track Horizon Award, Kopp’s ascension to the professional ranks was anticipated in a manner reserved for the sport’s most highly rated prospects, such as reigning Parts Unlimited AFT Singles champion Dallas Daniels. While he showed flashes early in the 2021 season, Kopp proved he was fully deserving of that considerable hype during the second half of his rookie campaign. The young ace battled for the win en route to a runner-up at Port Royal and later backed that performance up with podiums at the Springfield ST and Charlotte HM. The teenager also demonstrated his innate skills while laying claim to ‘save of the year’ honors with a physics-defying near-crash in Peoria. As good as his rookie season was, it proved to be but a tease when Kopp arrived as a genuine power in 2022. He secured the ‘22 Parts Unlimited AFT Singles title two rounds early with a dominant seven-win, ten-podium campaign that left the remainder of the field battling over second. Despite his numerous achievements, the brightest days are still ahead for Kopp, who is almost universally viewed as a future Mission SuperTwins star.
