There was a day on the NASCAR circuit when Miss Winston girls would walk around and hand out smokes to guys who looked like they could use a smoke. The sport used to have bikini-clad girls prancing around to keep casanovas content before the green flag dropped. Times have changed. Now the sport boasts the Miss Sprint Cup ladies. The racing season gets started this weekend at Daytona & includes new ladies who’ll meet the drivers in the winner’s circle.  

According to NASCAR:

At least four Miss Winston figures went on to become a Mrs. NASCAR.

• Former Miss Winston Patti Petty married Kyle Petty
• Renee White is the ex-wife of former Daytona 500 winner Derrike Cope
• Andy Petree married Patrice McBride
• Brooke Sealey, the Miss Winston who is Jeff Gordon’s ex wife.

Now, instead of dating the drivers, Miss Sprint Cup is more likely to be tweeting about track conditions and about Danica Patrick track bar adjustments. Still beautiful, yet full of brains.

It’s a new era for NASCAR promo girls.
