We never have a bad time at the Barber Motorsports Park, and that especially holds true for the Barber Small Bore event. The event is full of riders zipping around on small bikes, competing in races and competitions, and having plenty of fun. This year, the Barber Small Bore, presented by MNNTHBX, will run June 9-11 for its fourth iteration.

At the annual Barber Small Bore, each evening ends with parade laps on the racetrack.

Racing includes drag races on a dual-lane 168-foot strip, the two-hour Minibike Endurance GP held in partnership with Sportbike Track Time, and pitbike races. Each race event has dedicated track time before the race to give you the chance to sharpen your skills.

A returning fan favorite race is the Creek Bottom Classic, in which streetbikes with displacements of 200cc or less compete on an off-road trail. All riders and bikes that fit the requirements are welcome. There will also be a minibike hill climb and an amateur stunt competition with a $1,000 cash prize. A stunt lot will be available throughout the weekend to practice your stunts before the competition.
