Women's motocross champ and X Games medalist Sara Price is looking to swap out her racing helmet for a diamond tiara this weekend at the Miss California USA 2013 beauty pageant in Pasadena, Calif.

The 20-year-old motocross prodigy -- who won 17 national amateur titles with three different sanctioning bodies and won AMA/WMX "Rookie of the Year" honors in 2009 -- has submitted her photo portfolio to the judges and is now preparing for the pageant's three equally scored onstage events: interview, swimsuit and evening gown.

"What I've learned is to just be yourself," Price told XGames.com. "When you do that, it'll show, and that's what the judges want to see."

The Miss California USA pageant is owned by business magnate and "The Apprentice" TV star Donald Trump. According to its website, the pageant is "looking for outgoing, intelligent, confident, attractive young women excited to represent the beauty of California."

Price's entry into Miss California USA comes on heels of winning first runner-up and "Miss Photogenic" at a pageant for teens last year in San Bernardino County.
