“We were able to provide an amazing opportunity for our current Miss Supercross, Brittney George, who won the title of Miss Supercross 2006 on www.supercrossonline.com. Now we look forward to doing the same in the second installment of the contest, said Linda Ardehali, director of new media, Live Nation. “Good luck to all three of our finalists!”
Leticia Cline, who lives in Florida and Texas while working as a model and television host, has been involved with the motorcycle industry, representing several companies, including series sponsor Parts Unlimited, Racer X and Amp’d Mobile Supercross.
“I’m excited to be one of the final 3, said Cline. “Racing is a big part of my life and this is a great opportunity to stay involved in the industry that I’ve been waiting a long time for.”

“When I found out my jaw dropped, I’m so excited to be a part of this amazing opportunity, said Chelsea Buhler. “I can’t wait to be around all the excitement.”
California native Sara Lipert was drawn to the sport of motocross at the young age of six when she began riding her 80cc motorcycle around a dry lake near her house for hours at a time. She quickly found herself growing with the sport as she purchased numerous motorcycles on her way to becoming a finalist for Miss Supercross.
“To have this opportunity to be a part of the sport I love, is a dream come true in every way, and all the people that voted have shown amazing support and I can’t put in words how much I appreciate them, said Sara Lipert.
Miss Supercross 2007-’08 will make her debut at the opening race of the 2007-’08 Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP race.
