With the off-road industry all gathering in Southern California at the 2013 Off-Road Expo, there were a number of great events and announcements during the weekend.

Fort Mill, SC – February 14, 2012 – What do “Wheel of Fortune’s” Vanna White and “Wonder Woman” Linda Carter have in common? They both hold the distinct honor of being a Miss Mint 400 winner. And Mad Media, along with sponsor General Tire, is looking for the new 2012 Miss Mint 400 in advance of the famed General Tire Mint 400. This year’s Miss Mint 400 winner will earn a $5,000 cash prize in addition to other prizes, national exposure and a professional photo shoot.
“The Miss Mint 400 competition provided a great platform for me to expand into more and more spokesperson roles,” said Keli Snyder, 2011 Miss Mint. “The opportunity to be part of such a historic event was certainly a huge honor for me.”
The 2012 Miss Mint 400 winner, Ali Kessler, also used the Miss Mint competition to help expand her career.
“I really enjoyed my time as Miss Mint 400,” said Kessler. “To be named with women like Vanna White and Linda Carter is a big distinction. I know having the Miss Mint 400 title in my portfolio has helped me secure numerous modeling jobs over the last couple years. I’m very thankful for the opportunity that was presented to me.”
The 2011 SEMA Show highlights everything – and we mean everything – in the automotive aftermarket. The Las Vegas Convention Center is filled with companies displaying their newest products, meeting new clients, and highlighting their product lines to potential buyers, sellers and everyone in between.
We in the media world get an all-access pass into the SEMA Show to educate and highlight all of the things the general public doesn’t get to see. As the automotive industry learned long ago, cars and trucks seem to go hand in hand with beautiful women, and SEMA certainly has no shortage of either.
Here’s a small sample size of SEMA girls, “booth babes,” or whatever clever name you’d like to call the pretty women scattered about the show.
RPM/KTM rider Maria Forsberg claimed her eighth win of the season and her second career championship in the Women’s class at the eleventh round of the Grand National Cross Country Series held in Somerset, PA.
Forsberg not only won the Women’s series, she dominated the series. At the weekend’s Mountain Ridge GNCC she finished 2nd overall in the morning class while winning the Women’s class finishing over 17 minutes ahead of the 2nd place rider.
The 4-time WORCS Champion, now 2-time GNCC Champion and X-Game Women’s EnduroCross Gold medalist has proven to be one of the best decorated and versatile athletes in the sport of women’s off-road motorcycle racing.
Her championship in the 2011 GNCC Series comes to her two rounds early as a result of her impressive eight race win streak this season. “It feels really good to wrap up the championship early. I did not expect to dominate the way I have this season and I am so grateful that I had the RPM/KTM Team behind me to help me win this championship. My KTM 250 XC-F has held up through every race this season and we never had any mechanical issues. I am looking forward to riding more relaxed the next two rounds and perhaps racing in the afternoon class at one of them to see where I end up,” remarked Forsberg.
