Search for Miss Monster Energy Cup Kicks Off Tomorrow

Feld Motor Sports® is pleased to announce that the search for Miss Monster Energy Cup begins Wednesday, August 8. One lucky participant will receive an all-expense paid trip to the Monster Energy Cup on October 20 at Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium to serve as the spokesmodel for this lucrative race.

The search for Miss Monster Energy Cup will start with 25 randomly selected girls across the nation. Participants will be required to submit several photos and a brief bio. The winner will receive an exclusive prize pack, which includes airfare, hotel accommodations, Monster Energy Cup merchandise and more. See official rules for details.

Miss Monster Energy Cup will be responsible for hoisting the 30-second board prior to each race, meeting the world’s top riders at the winner’s circle and interviewing riders, fans and industry personnel. Fans will have a chance to meet Miss Monster Energy Cup throughout the day in the pits and around the stadium.

The summer-long search will start with 25 hopefuls and will be narrowed down to three finalists in the final weeks of the search. The lucky winner will be selected in September.

The 2012 Monster Energy Cup features an all-new track design inspired by five-time Supercross Class Champion Ricky Carmichael. The Carmichael-inspired track design will consist of supercross and motocross obstacles unlike any other racetrack design in the world. More than 200’ of the track will be built into the grandstands, and the riders exit the stadium and race through the Monster Energy Fan Zone outside of the stadium and through the pit area before they catapult back into the stadium. The Monster Energy Cup posts a $250,000 purse with the winner walking away with a $100,000 check, and any rider that wins all three Main Events will take home $1 million.
