Nothing ‘Sleepy’ About Sleepy Hollow MX
There’s nothing ‘sleepy’ about Sleepy Hollow MX. The well known motocross park located in Fredericksburg, Pennsylvania is as action packed as any local MX establishment can get. As a matter of fact, the park has been promoting great events for years, and has built quite a reputation for historic local North East venues. Many well known motocross stars have ripped around Sleepy Hollow’s track at some point in the past, and a handful of current up and coming amateur champions call it “home”. Team Chronic MX’s very own Scott Meshey, the winner of FMF’s 2013 Amateur Performance Award, says it was at Sleepy Hollow MX where he first learned how to ride… fast. Pennsylvania is no stranger to great motocross tracks, as the state has hosted professional outdoor motocross racing at both Steel City and High Point. The “Keystone” state has a strong population of motocross enthusiasts.
Jere Swarr is the man behind Sleepy Hollow’s success. Just recently, Swarr hosted the DEP Pipes 2 Stroke Shootout at his track. The event, which was Sleepy Hollow’s 3rd annual two stroke shootout, successfully echoed sweet sounds of ‘braaap’ throughout the area’s hills, while drawing in a record crowd. The $10,000 purse didn’t hurt in attracting good riders, but it was the track’s solid reputation, along with the weekend’s ’no four strokes rule’ that did the trick. Free camp grounds, combined with Saturday and Sunday racing were nothing shy of fun-filled and action packed. Check out the above video of the 250 A class, filmed at the event by our friend Matt Wozney of MXPTV. Jimmy Decotis rode strong and battled hard, to take home the first place DEP trophy, via great battles with some of the country’s top two stroke riders.
