SCOTT SHEAK (1974-2021)
We are deeply saddened to report the passing of Scott Sheak, the former professional motocross racer from Germantown, New York. Sheak suffered multiple spinal and internal injuries a little more than two weeks ago in a heavy crash while training at Walden Motocross in New York. Sheak was first taken to MidHudson Medical Center, then moved to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, where doctors and nurses worked to stabilize him. Unfortunately, the massive injuries and subsequent pneumonia and staph infections proved to be too much, and he passed away earlier this afternoon. He was 47 years old.
Scott Sheak is survived by his beloved wife, Amy, whom he’d known since high school, and stepchildren Ryan and Brooke’lyn. Amy said today that she takes solace knowing that Scott was doing exactly what he loved doing throughout his entire life—he was riding his motorcycle.
The Road 2 Recovery Foundation has been working closely with the Sheak family to help them navigate this unforeseen tragedy and have set up a fund to help them offset the immense costs of his hospitalization and care; they will continue accepting donations in his memory, with all funds going to support his family. Please donate here on Scott’s R2R Fund page- link on our bio.
On behalf of the entire motocross community, we offer our sincere condolences to Scott Sheak’s family, his friends, and all the countless people he touched along the way. When details of a memorial service are finalized we will share them here and on @racerxonline
