Zip-Ty Husqvarna Wraps Up WORCS Season Sherri Cruse wins, Burson and Graffunder in the top-five at season finales.
November 8, 2011 – Corona, CA – While Husqvarna racers were busy highlighting the Loretta Lynn’s GNCCs, a few others were also earning wins in the West. The World Off Road Championship Series (WORCS) finale took place at Speed World MX in Surprise, Arizona and return-Husqvarna racer Sherri Cruse topped the Women’s Pro class aboard a Zip-Ty Racing TC250.
In only her second race back since becoming a mother three months ago, Cruse is already back up to speed, and enjoyed being back in the saddle with her baby girl Emerie on the sidelines cheering her on. Cruse battled with reigning WORCS champion Kacy Martinez on the opening lap, but steadily pulled away throughout the rest of the race to take a convincing win.
The rest of the Zip-Ty Husqvarna team was also in action at the Arizona WORCS finale. Cory Graffunder closed out his season with a top-five finish in the Pro 2 class. Graffunder returned from injury earlier this summer in time to remain in the championship hunt, and finish second in points for the 2011 season in the Pro 2 division.
Sherri Cruse is back with Zip-Ty Racing and back to her winning ways on a Husqvarna TC250.
Nick Burson finished fourth in the Open Expert division of the Prospectors Grand Prix in Gorman, CA.
Nick Burson also wrapped up his season over the weekend, with his final Big 6 Grand Prix race taking place in Gorman, California. Burson finished his 2011 season with a fourth-place finish in the Open Expert class aboard his TXC511 at the Prospectors GP.
One more win went to another Husqvarna rider – Revelle Harrison. HMNA’s own National Sales Manager was out at the wet and muddy 27th Annual MTA World Vet Championship, where he topped the 30+ Expert class with a 1-2 moto score!
“It was a really great weekend all around,” commented Husqvarna National Marketing Manager Corey Eastman. “Congrats to all our racers on wrapping up such strong seasons. It’s great to have Sherri Cruse on a Husky, and we’re also proud to see our employees doing well at the races, too!”
