Nine contestants are signed up for the Miss Friendship Pageant to be held at Friendship Motor Speedway Saturday night, track general manager Michael Tesh said Wednesday.


“They can still sign up,” Tesh said, adding that any additional contestants would have to be at the speedway at 3:30 p.m. Saturday and report to the press box.


“It really ended up being a cool deal last year,” Tesh said. “The fans voted on it. This year the drivers will vote on it.


“We had a good time with it last year.”


The contest is open to all except those who are drivers at Friendship.


The winner will represent the track and have her photo taken with the feature winners throughout the season.


Pit gates and the grandstand open at 3:30. The drivers meeting is at 5:45. Racing starts shortly thereafter.
