19-year-old Cruse, really made her mark in women's pro racing last season with a WMA national win at Thunder Valley, Lakewood, CO and with her silver medal performance at the first ever women's Moto X race at the ESPN X Games, which aired live on ABC. Sherri will be racing for AXO in 2009 at the top women's professional motocross and off-road events including the WMA Cup, the eight-stop AMA/WMA National Motocross Championship, the X Games, and select WORCS races.
