Tuesday, August 22nd the opening round of TransWorld’s Masters of Mini Pit Bike Series kicked off and boasted 167 entries -- on a Tuesday!

Every year the annual Marshfield Fair hosts a Big Bike Supercross race on Wednesday. It has been going on for over 6 years and attracts the top name local riders in the New England Area. This year MoM got to piggy back the popular event put on by Dana Johnson and the South Shore Promotions crew. Dana invited the Master’s of Mini to lead in the program with a Tuesday night event. Riders came from allover the place -- MA, ME, NH, CT, RI, NY, NJ and even as far away as PA!

The day started off with a lengthy practice session for everyone followed by intense racing in front of the fairground spectators. In fact, half of the classes needed qualifiers to get down to the 16 person main events, which were held under the fairground lights.

In the end the strongest survived Round 1, but with three rounds left it is anyone’s guess who will be taking home the crown and heading to Vegas in May to compete in the biggest little event on the planet -- The Mini Moto SX.
