Gemma-Lee Farrell outlasted 21 contestants throughout the 10-week search to become the first-ever Miss Monster Energy Cup.
Feld Motor Sports announced today that Gemma-Lee Farrell, of Los Angeles, Calif., has been selected as Miss Monster Energy Cup for the inaugural Monster Energy Cup, which takes place on October 15 at Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium.
"Thanks goes out to everyone all around the world who voted for me," exclaimed Farrell. “It’s awesome that I get to serve as the first-ever Miss Monster Energy Cup. I am so excited for this historic race next weekend. The whole weekend is going to be so much fun. Vegas, here I come!"
Farrell 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. Farrell will also be participating in various promotional events in Las Vegas the week leading up to race. Fans will have a chance to get autographs and take photos with Farrell throughout the day on Saturday.
The unique hybrid track will consist of supercross/motocross terrain and will have a tremendous motocross-style influence, making it unlike any other stadium race in the world. This track will be the perfect blend of supercross and motocross combined and created into the ultimate battleground. The Monster Energy Cup posts a $250,000, awarding the winner a $100,000 check, and for the “first time ever” $1 Million will be paid to a rider that wins all three main events.
