Minor Information
 
Below is all of the information you need to know about registering your minor rider to participate in an open ride or competition event. Yes, it is a lot of info! YES, you really need to read it all to be prepared! The link to the forms is at the bottom of this info.
 
Let's start out by defining a few terms
Parent – Anytime we refer to a “parent” we mean a biological parent. Step-parents are an integral part of family units and we are not diminishing their role. However, it is the biological parents signatures that we need. Step-parents should not misrepresent themselves and attempt to sign a rider in by presenting themselves as a biological parent.
Legal Guardian – When we say a “Legal Guardian” we mean an adult who has LEGAL guardianship over a minor through the court system. You need to attend the event with your guardianship papers, and bring them to registration for verification if they are requested.
Minor Release Form - This is the form labeled “Parental Consent, Release and Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk, and Indemnity Agreement”. At the track it is commonly referred to as a “Minor Release Form”. This is a 2 page/sided form that is a release waiver of liability. It requires the signatures of BOTH parents and the minor rider.
Now let's start answering your questions! These are our most commonly answered questions. If you still need answers feel free to contact us. Our office is open Monday through Friday 8:00am to 3:00pm, (574) 893-1649. If we have an event on a Monday or Friday our office is closed. Our email is reads1@myfrontiermail.com. We do not check emails on event days. If you have questions make sure you get answers PRIOR to the weekend.
 
All minors MUST be accompanied by  AT LEAST 1 BIOLOGICAL parent.  Whenever possible please have both parents sign a Minor Release Form.  (Remember, you only have to do it once per year!)
 
Parents in divorced situations - you know your situation.  If one parent has Sole Legal Custody, that parent must be the one to accompany the minor to the track to sign in OR provide the other parent with a signed and NOTARIZED minor form.  The form is available online.  You can print it out (MUST be in color), have it NOTARIZED, and bring it with you.
 
MOTORSPORTS ARE INHERENTLY DANGEROUS.  RIDERS AND FAMILIES SHOULD BE AWARE OF THE RISKS INVOLVED.

 

TO BE COMPLETELY CLEAR - Parental Permission from a Biological Parent is REQUIRED.  Step-parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Siblings, etc. must follow the procedure outlined below, in the situation if a parent cannot attend.  If you have a special situation and have questions please reach out to us so we can help guide you.  Call our office at 574-893-1649 Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 3:00pm or you can email us anytime at reads1@myfrontiermail.com
 
Question: Do we need to fill out a Minor Release Form at each event?
Answer:
Once filled out properly you only need 1 per calendar year!
**Note: This does not mean the minor can attend without a parent. It just means you don't have to fill it out each time**
 
Question: How do I correctly fill out the minor form?
Answer:
 
We have filled out a Minor Release form as an example for you. (Click here to view)
 
Question: What if neither parent can attend with the minor?
Answer:
1. Print the minor form. (If you already have a Minor Release turned in, you may skip to number 3.)
