The two-time World Speedway Champion said consistency is the main key to becoming a World Champion. K&N is part of the Crump’s winning equation. “K&N makes the best filter on the market,” said Crump. “I depend on the additional horsepower and extra filtration at every race. K&N has been on my motorcycles since the beginning of my career and helped me reach the podium every time.”

For the record, Poland’s Tomasz Gollob won the final Grand Prix on his home track at Bydgoszcz and finished the year as the bronze medalist as Denmark’s Nicki Pedersen took the World Championship. Gollob then went on to win the Super-Prix race from Crump and took the major share of the $200,000.00 prize purse.
“Congratulations to Nicki on winning the World Championship,” said Crump. “It’s all about consistency and Gollob won three GP’s and finished third. I won two and finished second and Nicki only won one Grand Prix and finished first. Gollob, however, was the most consistent reaching the final on nine occasions and collecting lots of points on the way.”
The 2008 season brought out some of Crump’s outstanding performances including two Grand Prix wins and three other podium positions. A handful of below average performances by his own standards thwarted any chance of the Australian taking the World Championship for a third time.
“I’m happy to have gone from world number three to world number two,” he said. “I collected a cool $40,000.00 for coming in second in the Super-Prix and am very happy with that.”
Crump is working on the 2009 season and plans to make several changes for the better. One thing that will stay the same on his motorcycles is K&N filters. “My aim is to be World Champion next year,” he said. “Without the support of sponsors like K&N, my fans and my team none of this would be possible."
