Toyo Picks Top World Challenge Fan Focus Model of 2007

TOPEKA, Kan. (Jan. 4, 2008) -- Nearly 30 young women were chosen from hundreds to be Fan Focus models during the 2007 SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge season in a promotion supported by Modified Mag and Toyo Tires. After narrowing the field down to the top ten, Toyo Tires has chosen Yvette Meza, of Fontana, Calif., as the winner of the 2007 SPEED World Challenge Fan Focus model search contest.

Meza was one of three models selected to participate in the SPEED GT event at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Her look, professionalism and personality won over fans, teams and staff. In addition to a flash-animated online portfolio and website from ModelsDesired.com, Meza received the opportunity to interview with Toyo Tires and be evaluated for a modeling contract.

"The 2007 World Challenge model search was a huge success," Toyo Tires Manager of Events and Motorsports Stan Chen said. "We had another stellar group of beautiful women compete for the title and we look forward to picking the next winner in 2008."

Joining Meza in the top ten were Andrea Poulos and Tana Gabrielle from Round Four at Lowe's Motor Speedway, Jessyca Phichit and Seanna Mitchell from Round Two at Long Beach, Briana Dixon (Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course), Christa Bartol (Toronto), Jessica Deppe (Watkins Glen), Molly Powers (Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca), and Sarah Ward (Road Atlanta). All models in the top ten will receive an online portfolio from ModelsDesired.com.

The Toyo Tires/Modified Mag Fan Focus Model Search will return in 2008. Stay tuned to www.world-challenge.com/modelsearch for more information.
