In being named a reserve, Sundstrom has taken one more step towards his ultimate goal of riding in the world's top speedway series. "That will be a great experience for me and the team to get to watch the top teams in the sport up close," said the 2008 Swedish Rider of the Year.

Sundstrom got some more good news recently. His team has qualified for the Swedish U21 Finals, to be held at his home track of Rye House. Sundstrom also competes for the Rye House team. This season, the young rider has taken on multiple roles, racing in Sweden, Poland and England. It's been a long year, but good results continue to pour in.

"I'm very happy with the way I have been riding. The UK has especially been very good in both the Premier and Elite leagues. The Swedish and Polish leagues are still very hard, but we are still scoring some good points and still making good progress with regards to my career development."

Sundstrom's newest team, Start Gniezno in Poland, also recently qualified for the playoffs with the help of their new rider. The team finished fourth in the regular season standings, and Sundstrom is looking forward to the experience he will gain in the playoffs.

The K&N sponsored rider still has several appearances left on the season, and by years end, will have ridden in more than 100 events. "With so much traveling and then the riding its so important to have a good team around you. They really help take some of the pressure off."

Sundstrom says his K&N Filters are holding up wonderfully during the grueling races. Speedway bikes can accelerate to 60mph quicker than a Formula 1 car, so keeping everything clean is important. "My engine tuners are always happy when they see the work K&N Filters does for our motors. Keeping dirt out of the engine keeps everything running clean and smooth, and that eliminates the need to constantly spend money on rebuilds and service."
