    The race to the Chase is heating up, and one lovely lady will be there to keep you posted on all the action in the pits.

    Say hello to Jamie Little, B/R's Sports Chick Hottie of the Week, who burst onto the scene as a reporter in 2000.

    Jamie Little was born in Las Vegas in 1978.  She grew up idolizing her mother Laura Thomas, who worked as a showgirl in South Lake Tahoe.

    Little grew up wanting to be a star like her mother and was known for living an active lifestyle.

    Her fame hasn't tempered her love for adventure one bit.  She has participated in several celebrity races and enjoys riding mini bikes in her spare time.

    After she received her B.A. in Journalism from SDSU in 2001, Jamie had ambitions of becoming a sports reporter.

    Her quest to get involved in sports was fulfilled shortly after she finished college, when she began covering Supercross and Motorcross events.

    And with that, a star was born.

    Jamie's career took her from NBC to the Speed Channel, where she covered numerous events including boat racing and Daytona Supercross action.

    She eventually contacted the producers of ESPN's XGames about contributing and joined the network in 2002.

    She covered Moto X in both the summer and winter games and also worked as a co-host of ESPN's Great Outdoor Games.

No. 6: The Legend Grows

    Jamie's work in Motocross and Supercross was noticed and she became a popular figure around the sport.  She even became a video game cover girl for MX World Tour Featuring Jamie Little.

    With her fame growing, an ascension in the broadcasting world was inevitable.

No. 5: Life in the Fastlane

    In 2004, Little became the first woman to cover the Indianapolis 500 when she worked as a pit reporter.  After that, she also began covering NASCAR.

    She became a polarizing figure with racing fans and is never afraid to ask drivers tough questions.

    Just ask Kyle Busch.

    Sadly, the details aren't really very steamy, just disappointing for her fans everywhere.

    Jamie got engaged to racing client manager Cody Selman earlier this year.  Selman works for Motorsports Management International, which represents NASCAR drivers Tony Stewart, Jamie McMurray and current Sprint Cup points leader Denny Hamlin.

    The two will be married somewhere near San Diego in December.
