Keli Snyder, a University of Southern California journalism student and a television host for Lucas Oil, has been crowned as General Tire's Miss Mint in Las Vegas.

“Keli is the perfect candidate for this title,” says Dana Zamalloa, manager of public relations and communications. “She’s ambitious, driven, has a strong passion for motorsports, and understands that character is an important part of this legendary title. We’re proud to have her represent General Tire as our Miss Mint 400 for 2011.”

Snyder, 21, was a clear winner, according to Zamalloa. “During the interview portion of the competition, Snyder’s background in motorsports, her understanding of the legendary Mint 400 competition and race, her witty answers and her passion for off-road racing set her apart from the other candidates.”

Currently Snyder is the field reporter for the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series and the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, which air weekly on the Speed Channel and on Versus. She was formerly the host of the Lucas Oil Women’s Motocross Championship and has worked as a pit reporter for the Monster Jam World finals and at other Lucas Oil motorsports events.

As part of her reign, Synder waved the green flag to officially start the March 25-27 Mint 400 racing events.

Previous Miss Mints have included Lynda Carter, who went on to star as television’s “Wonder Woman,” plus Wheel of Fortune letter-turner Vanna White.
