Over the weekend, Run to Raton (R2R), a motorcycle rally event hosted by J.P. Rodman, was held on Historic First Street in Raton, New Mexico from July 22-25.


Organizer Jenny Bacca Mills


For four years, Jenny Sisneros has competed in the pinup contest vying for the crown. The judges voted Jenny’s "Rosie the Riveter" attire as most authentic to the era with true originality. She sported denim overalls, red chucks, and tied her dark pixie hair in a bandana. The audience learned of her love for anime and video games during her interview questions.


She loves being a role model for other young women and hopes to persuade them to compete in the future. Jenny explained she will be competing in the years to come as she has more crowns to obtain. In the meantime, she enjoys eating red chile cheese fries and being at home with her children.
