On September 16th – 18th Sleepy Hollow MX Park in Frederickburg, PA held the 1st annual North American Two Stroke Championships.
The weekend started for TSM upon arrival late Thursday night. After setting up camp, we decided on a track walk. What did we find?
My new favorite track! Great soil. Great layout. Great people, and some nice signature sections and jumps.
The weekend offered Two Stroke and MX fans in general a great time, and some great racing!
Practice was held on Friday for those willing to skip work and/or school for the event. As the day progressed the track started looking even better than when we arrived.
How were the races? The best I’ve seen in a while! Some fast guys showed up, including our own Jeremy Wendelken.
The A classes were stacked. Some of them include Ty Newcome, Broc Schmelyun, Cody Lunceford, Kyle Sidle, Casey Clarke and Sean Hackley Jr.
I have posted a link below for full race results, but lets talk A class podiums.
On Saturday in 125A, Ty Newcome took 1st overall with a 2-1 on a Suzuki RM 125. Dana Krause took 2nd on a Yamaha with a 3-2. Sean Hackley finished 3rd overall with a 1st and DNF.
250A was very exciting to watch. Fast guys, on some fast smokers!
Broc Scmelyun took 1st overall with a solid 1-1 on his #111 YZ 250. Cody Lunceford claimed 2nd with a 4-3 on his #46 YZ 250. Jeremy Wendelken on his #72 YZ 250 rounded it out with a solid 3-4 for 3rd overall.
Sunday was full of racing, modern and vintage. One of the most exciting races was one of vintage. These guys were riding like they had way more than 4-8? of suspension travel, it was an awesome sight!
Sundays A classes were amazing as well.
For the 125A class Gregory Pamart took 1st with a 1-1. Addison Kramer took 2nd and C C Aughinbaugh took 3rd. All three on Yamaha’s.
250A was held down by Sean Hackley Jr with a 1-1 on his #18 KTM 250SX. Casey Clark took 2nd with a 2-2 for the day. Our own Jeremy Wendelken takes 3rd on his YZ 250.
Highlight and downfall of the day, Ty Newcome and his YZ 250 went in the pond during 250A moto1. Ty and his YZ are fine.
Smoker to watch?
Brennen threw a leg over his father’s RM and burned up the 250B class. 1st places all weekend. Keep an eye on him, we are!
