Ashleigh Fisher Appointed as Miss Monster Energy Cup
AURORA, Ill. (October 8, 2012) – Feld Motor Sports® is excited to announce that by popular vote, Ashleigh Fisher, of Houston, has been appointed the role of Miss Monster Energy Cup. Fisher 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.
“I’m so excited to have been selected as Miss Monster Energy Cup,” exclaimed Fisher. “It’s truly an honor to become the spokesmodel for this all-star event. I can’t wait for the gates to drop at Sam Boyd Stadium on October 20.”
Fisher outlasted 25 contestants throughout the summer-long search to become 2012 Miss Monster Energy Cup. Click the image above to hear Fisher’s thoughts on her new role.
Fisher will have the honor of hoisting the 30-second board prior to each race and will greet the Monster Energy Cup’s top riders at the winner’s circle. Fisher will also be participating in various promotional events in Las Vegas the week leading up to the race. Fans will have a chance to get autographs and take photos with Fisher throughout the day on Saturday.
The search for Miss Monster Energy Cup started with 25 randomly selected girls across the nation and was lessened down to three contestants before the final selection was made.
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. New to this year’s track will be a 200’ banked sweeping turn that will be built in the stands, two 11 rider starting gates split by 220’ before they converge at the apex of the 300’ start straight and the joker lane that riders will have to race through at least once during laps 2-10. After racing through these sections of the track, fans will be treated to equally exciting racing lanes that are built into the Monster Energy Fan Zone, which is located outside of 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.
