Jason Crump went into the European Speedway Grand Prix at Leszno in Poland knowing he had to improve his performance. His points results were less than average at Slovenia two weeks prior. Unfortunately the race in Poland was another night to forget for the double World Grand Prix Champion.

A last place in his first ride and four second place finishes in the remaining heats, gave Crump enough points to qualify for the semi-final. He still had a chance to grab additional points toward the championship.

All that came to a shattering halt when Dane Penderson crashed. Crump was controversially excluded by the referee for causing the stop in action. “The incident with Penderson in the semi was just one of those racing accidents and this time it went against me,” said Crump. “My results in the heats were not that good and I’m still missing the starts for some reason. It’s all part of racing, you win some and you lose some. This time I lost.”

Crump’s fellow Australian Leigh Adams won the race. After two rounds Crump is 7th in the World Championship Standings. The 32-year-old Queenslander and his team use K&N Engineering products. “I love K&N products, the K&N Filters are the best in the world,” said Crump. “I have solely used K&N products and never had a problem. K&N is the best for dirt track racing and does the job it was made to do.”

Round three of the 2008 Speedway Grand Prix World Championship moves to Gothenburg in Sweden on Saturday May 24th.
