Miss Monster Energy Cup: Gemma Farrell

2011 Monster Energy Cup

As the anticipation builds for next weekend’s inaugural Monster Energy Cup, which will offer a million-dollar purse for the rider who possibly takes all three main events at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, the famed Honda tagline "gawk responsibly" has much merit for one particular element.

Why? With motorcycle racing comes the good-looking women, and the Monster Energy Cup will be no different. 

On Friday, Feld Motor Sports reported that Gemma-Lee Farrell will be Miss Monster Energy Cup; the Los Angeles native was chosen out of 21 contestants throughout the 10-week search.

Gemma-Lee Farrell says: "Thanks goes out to everyone all around the world who voted for me. 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!"

Feld Motor Sports says: "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, Feld Motor Sports says.

SPEED TV will cover the event live, with coverage beginning at 9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15.
