Mandi Benoit, a Jeeper from Carencro, has been entered into a contest, and needs your vote to represent Carencro nationally!

Mandi is a huge Jeeper, having customized her Jeep to the point of having placed in car shows.  Not only is her Jeep great to look at, it is VERY capable on the trails!  Winning this contest would be great, as she would be very honored to represent Louisiana at the National 4x4 Off-Road Expo in California.

It would be an honor for me to represent Louisiana at the National Off-Road Expo.  There are so many great people in the off-road community, it would be great to have the opportunity to share information about Louisiana, our rides, and our culture, with them. - Mandi Benoit

Poison Spyder is the company sponsoring the competition.  They are an after-market Jeep and 4x4 supplier, and they will be choosing their Poison Spyder girls soon (similar to the Bud Girls).  They will be choosing from the 10 girls with the most votes in this contest, so Mandi needs all the votes you can offer.  

Your vote will determine the top 10, the finalists.  Poison Spyder will choose one winner from those 10 for their Poison Spyder Girl!

Mandi and her friends and family have been supporting local charities for years, from the American Lung Association's 'jeep jaunt' to various poker runs and fundraisers, police memorials and military processions.  Let's show our appreciation to her by giving her a few clicks!
