We are excited to be realizing a HUGE step in the growth of the Mini Major events! On September 23-25 we will be holding an East versus West Championships at the famous Freestone MX National Track in Wortham Texas. Everyone on a mini is invited whether you raced a previous East or West Round this year or not. It’s a great opportunity for everyone to try out the Mini Major experience. Riders who did East or West rounds will get preferred gate picks in Moto 1.
The goal of the Mini Major by SEVEN in addition to running a smooth and professional event is and has always been to provide an opportunity for racers just getting their career going to experience a large scale event. Mini Major provides Beginner and Novice classes as well as more traditional age group classes for a more inclusive racer experience. We look to support those racers that are newer with lower entry fees and ton’s of giveaways so they have a great experience racing. It’s super exciting to see the riders who have come through Mini Major making their pro debut’s in recent years. This is the seventh annual running of the Mini Major and we look to keep improving every year. Visit out pre registration page CLICK HERE
and start with what should be your first class. Are you a Beginner, Novice or fast Age Group racer? There are recommendations for second and third classes after you locate your first class as well as Open class opportunities where you get a chance to race the faster riders as well. Pre registration will close 9/21/22, at 8pm. You can sign up on site starting Thursday afternoon at 2pm. Classes will be $10 more on site.
Unique for this event with the help of SEVEN we made custom race bibs for all riders! These will be worn by every racer to represent their coast with different colors for East and West. These will be cool collectors items and a really fun way to know which coast is leading every race. Ten Cent Boys will be on hand as well to custom print names and numbers if you like in the Mini Major standardized artwork.
Thursday – Pull in day! All parking is dry without hookups. Overnight parking for the entire weekend will be $70. As soon as you get on site all will be required to have an event wrist band. The wrist band for the entire weekend is $35. Race staff will also be onsite after 1pm to check in riders and assign bibs (pre purchase from our registration page).

There is no additional fee for riders who are registered in the event to practice. There are no fees or permits for golf carts or pit vehicles. Please always respect the facility and make sure you aren’t using vehicles after hours.
Each practice group will last approximately 15 minutes. Each group should get four rounds of practice barring any unplanned schedule delays. This is one hour or practice per category so if you ride a 85 and a Supermini you have tons of time to learn the track on each bike.

20 minutes after the last practice we will host the Father Son Race! This can be any combination of Mom/Dad and Son/Daughter on a team so long as there is one parent and one child on the team. Riders will race 4 laps starting with the child racer leaving the starting gate. The parent will take over after one lap and race the same motorcycle as the kid and riders will continue to switch off each lap. We know the competitive spirit runs in the blood of all of us just remember this is for fun and we want everyone finishing the race healthy and laughing! The riders who have the most fun are the winners on the day. Make sure you get by registration and sign up for this fun event that will create a lifetime of bench racing.
