Sprint unveiled its complete 2013 Miss Sprint Cup lineup to the more than 1 million Miss Sprint Cup followers on Facebook and Twitter Friday and the trio wasted little time getting to work, greeting media members and chatting with NASCAR legends at the National Motor Press Association Sprint Hall of Fame Reception Friday evening in Charlotte.
In a group dressed in business attire for the NMPA/NASCAR Hall of Fame dinner that followed, the three blonds wearing yellow and white fire suits were easy to spot. Miss Sprint Cup represents the Sprint brand around tracks and in Victory Lane and Miss Sprint Cup representatives took part in more than 900 media interviews and appearances in 2012.
Kim Coon returns for her third season as Miss Sprint Cup, which makes the former marketing and public relations professional the veteran member of the group.
Coons said Friday night that she is excited to get started on the busy year ahead. She explained that the three travel often but they go to the tracks on a rotating schedule.
Jaclyn Roney, an Eastern Michigan University graduate, joined the program in July 2011 and said she is also looking forward to another season of racing.
Brooke Werner, a former Miss Vermont USA, is the newest member of the group. “It’s truly an honor to be selected,” Werner said.
Following the reception, track owner Dr. Joseph Mattioli, broadcaster Ken Squier and NASCAR official Jim Hunter were inducted into the National Motorsports Press Association’s Hall of Fame.
