World Speedway Grand Prix Battle is Over and Australian Rider has Won Third Crown
Jason Crump is the 2009 World Speedway Grand Prix Champion. It is the Australian’s third World Championship in six years. He is also only one of eight riders to win three or more World Speedway Championships in the history of the sport. He won the championships in 2004 and 2006.

Jason Crump landed his third Grand Prix World Title in the space of six years at Bydgoszcz in Poland
The 34-year-old rider needed only eight points to secure the title when he went into the final race at Bydogoszcz in Poland. That lead was trimmed down to six when challenger Tomaz Gollob finished third in heat 12.

Triple Crown Champion Jason Crump will chase the record of six world Grand Prix titles starting in 2010
Crump was still nursing a painful arm injury that required a skin graft last month. He gained five points from his first three rides and only needed a point in heat 13 to win.
He closed the door on his challengers on heat 13 with a jet-propelled start from the outside gate to secure the title. “There were some nervous moments early on,” said Roy Stone, Crump’s Media Relations Manager. “But Jason stayed focused and on course and now belongs in the pantheon of world speedway greats.”
Crump won three out of eleven grand prix’s in 2009 and is also one of the most successful speedway riders in Australian history. He surpassed the two World Championships won by the late Jack Young in 1951 and 1952. “Five weeks ago I thought my season was over after my
in Belle Vue,” Crump said. “But a fantastic team of people helped me get back on track and I have to thank them all.”
The first half of the season went like
for Crump. “I messed up a little in the second half when I became a speedway rider rather than a speedway racer,” he said. “The injury never helped but things went well in the end and it was pretty special to win heat 13 when I only needed one point. It’s an awesome feeling to be the World Champion again.”
Crump finished the championship series with 159 points some 15 points clear of Polish veteran Tomasz Gollob. Gollob finished with 144 points and third placed teen rider Emil Sayfutdinov finished with 139 points.
Triple World Grand Prix Champion Crump has the tools of the trade to chase the record of six world titles starting in 2010. “As usual, I will be using K&N filters on all my bikes,” said Crump. “I have more than a dozen bikes in my stable for British, Polish and Swedish league racing and the World Championship Grand Prix. K&N has been a long time supporter and having the right filter is paramount in dirt track racing. K&N filters provide constant airflow for maximum engine performance. K&N delivers every time.”
