RIDERS UNDER AGE 18
Three ways to handle the required Minor Consent form:
- Register online for each event. Parents can complete the online waiver and will not have to fill out a waiver at the track. Note the a parent must stay at the event with the minor.
- If you don’t register online, a parent or legal guardian MUST come to registration, complete a minor release form, and stay for the event. Do not use the consent form below if your parent will be attending.
- If you don’t register online and a parent or legal guardian cannot attend, you can download the form below, have your parents sign and have it notarized, and bring it to registration. We recommend having another form notarized giving another adult permission to authorize medical treatment if necessary.
- 2022 Minor Consent Form: must be NOTARIZED or we can’t accept it.
- Check your Downloads folder, print, sign and have the waiver notarized; send it to the track with the adult bringing your child to the track. If a parent will be at the track, you don’t need the form notarized!
