The AMSOIL World Championship Derby Track will select a court to reign over the Derby, who have the desire and enthusiasm to serve as Queen and Princesses.  They will represent the City of Eagle River and surrounding communities. Derby Royalty is responsible for carrying the title proudly, by fulfilling the duties associated with their title.

The Queen and Princesses are chosen through an interview process, by private judges. Questions are selected by the judges and contestants will be scored on their ability to communicate, character and overall presentation.  The chosen Queen and Princesses are required to attend the following events: 2017 Trig’s Smokehouse World Championship Vintage Snowmobile Derby, 2017 AMSOIL World Championship Snowmobile Derby, ride in the 4th of July parade, and attend the 2017 Trig’s Smokehouse World Championship UTV / ATV Derby.
