The 2020 Mini Major West by SEVEN is upon us and we are seeing some indicators of what should be a record turnout for this event.

If you are just using day parking keep your vehicle selection compact as you can because there are many large vehicles on site for the whole weekend. Trailers and extra space may be located farther from the track.
Wristbands are required for everyone attending the event and must be worn at all times. If you are not wearing a wristband you will be asked to leave and no refunds will be provided. Starting Wednesday wristbands are $40. Friday they will be available for $30, Saturday for $20 and Sunday for $10.
Your help in making this a great event is super appreciated. We are lucky to have great neighbors and a partner in the fairgrounds around us who are helping to let us use their space and keep racers as close to the track as possible. Make sure you respect all their property and do not make it something that they regret. Keep track of your kids and do not allow them to ride their motorcycles where they shouldn’t be. We will keep the kids track open for pit bike riding. There will be no pit bikes riding in any other use besides going to and from the track. Remember the Mini Major is all about the kids having a great time. We want everyone to enjoy themselves.
COVID 19 Precautions: There are still several standards and practices that can help slow the spread of COVID that we need to be aware of and obey. You will see plastic separators at the registration tables to protect the staff as well as them wearing masks or face shields. We use online registration to prevent added contact at the event. Everyone should remain 6′ apart from those not from your household at all times and when you cannot maintain social distancing be sure to wear a face covering. Please remember to wash your hands regularly and stay as safe as possible. It’s not a political statement it’s what we do to keep operating safely. Just like you see at the pro nationals on TV lets act in a professional manner. Check out this video we created earlier in the year so you know what to expect.
Thank you all and see you at the Mini Major West by SEVEN! Special thanks to all of our awesome sponsors as well.
