  • Above and beyond these scheduled events every day we will also have a sweet demo track by Stacyc where you can give their latest models a try.  We are also going to host a straight Rhythm style race!  Stop by the Stacyc booth for a spin.
  • BMX has always been a great crossover to MX and we will have a pump track for kids to ride on in between motos.
  • We have an amazing vendor row full of great sponsors and partners!  Special thanks to SEVEN, Stacyc, Maxxis, Walters Mercedes Benz Sprinter, ODI, OGIO and Wiseco.  These sponsors make the event happen and will have giveaways and activations for the racers.  On the Vendor side we have support from MX Pro Parts, ASV, Bell, Dunlop, 6D, Split Design, Hinson, Scott, KTM, and Husqvarna.  They will all be there for rider support!
  • If you have never been to State Fair MX, the address 18700 Lake Perris Dr., Perris CA is for the State Fairgrounds.  Our exit is one light East on Ramona Expressway.  You will turn North on Fair and enter into the track.  Same entrance everyone has been using for quite a while.

Thanks to everyone for making this one of a kind Mini only event.  We have a few more bonuses up our sleeve and we can’t wait to see you there.




The Mini Major is back in 2019 with a new location and a bonus race SX format to kick things off for the weekend.  It all goes down Nov 7-10 at State Fair MX.  What started just a few years ago as just a concept to run a race event for just mini bikes only will once again be a must race event for all riders 500cc to 150cc!  SEVEN has returned as the presenting sponsor of the event and with their riding gear pushing the industry and limits of technology we are stoked to have them return.  SEVEN will have a massive rider area set up in the pits with activities and gear for everyone to check out. 

State Fair MX (formerly Starwest) was selected as the location for the Mini Major this year once it became an option for the owners of Perris Raceway and Milestone MX to bring it back to an operating MX Track.  The State Fairgrounds in Perris offers lots more parking at the facility without having to create parking by leveling tracks and squeezing everyone into every nook and cranny as we have at Milestone in years past.  The facility is just about set to open and so far testing on the layout has brought many smiles and great comments.  Much of the track reminds riders of sections that existed in the past on this sacred ground.

New for 2019 is the SX format race that will all happen Thursday night.  With limited open classes based on bike size (PX/XR, 50cc, 65cc, 85cc, Supermini)  there will be heats, a LCQ and a single main finishing under the lights!  For an opportunity to get some of our most recent Mini Major Champions back on a podium we are adding a Schoolboy 125cc class as well.  It will be a battle for bragging rights on the track for sure.

With there being no more cover for Transworld Motocross available Swap, Donn Maeda, has committed to rewarding his editors pick with a trip to the OGIO studio for an episode of the Swapmoto Live Show!  The overall champion and standout rider will get a chance to be interviewed live on the show featured on the SwapmotoLive.com website and youtube page.  Swap will make you famous!

Pre registration is now open at SwapmotoRaceSeries.com and you can find all the classes that we have to offer there.  Make sure that if you are looking to race the SX format race you find the page specifically for that event.  With our industry low prices and entry fees including a free event shirt, free transponders, free trackside photos, no membership, awesome custom trophies, a bmx pump track and sponsor village full of sponsors activities and demos make sure and sign up today!  Gate pick for moto 1 is based on the order you signed up.  First gate pick can be critical in this race as the start straight is a short one!
