  • Sherri Cruse
Cruse, who has had a breakthrough season in women¹s motocross, closed out the WORCS series in style by holding off tough competition from Carter Powersports Kawasaki¹s Penni Cyrus, and series points leader RPM Racing Team KTM¹s Maria Forsberg. Although she was unable to contend all of the rounds of the WORCS series she tied Forsberg (the 2008 WORCS Champion) for event wins.

The 19-year-old Suzuki rider had a tremendous year of racing. She had her first moto WMA Pro win at Thunder Valley MX, in Lakewood, CO joining an elite group of racers (only four) to win a moto in 2008. She also made the WMA Pro podium multiple times throughout the season, and won a silver medal in the inaugural Women¹s Moto X racing at the X Games, which aired live on ABC.

With her last ride on Zip Ty Racing/Macolm Smith Suzuki, the motocross, off-road and supercross racer will begin preparing for the WMA Cup at Freestone County Raceway, Wortham, TX, January 1, 2009.

Sherri would like to thank her 2008 sponsors for all of their support:
Zip-Ty Racing, Malcolm Smith Motorsports, Accelerade, J and J COPPER, Roundy 17, Alsup Racing, Team Goober, Ryan Abler, Randy D and Family, and Miki Keller.
