No matter what you think about NASCAR’s ability to entertain, its merits as a sport, or the intelligence of its die-hard fans, you can’t really ever go wrong with fast cars, beer, and hotties in the summertime. Emphasis on the hotties, because this years’ Miss Sprint Cup winner Paige Duke, 24, is Bridgestone-on-a-left-turn hot.
But back when she was 18 and just a freshman at Clemson, she sent some nekkid photos to her then-boyfriend. And as these photos tend to do, they were forwarded and reforwarded until they emerged this week on an internet forum and all hell broke loose. Unfortunately for Paige, the years old leaked nude photos violated Sprint’s so-called “morality code,” and she was fired from her gig as a traveling reporter/eye candy.
To which we say: seriously, Sprint? You hire a gorgeous girl whose job responsibilities are “be hot” and then you fire her for being too hot? What, did you receive truckloads of strongly-worded letters from concerned NASCAR enthusiasts who thought Paige’s hot boobs had given the sport a black eye? Did they threaten to cancel their data plans over it? “OUR SPORT IS THE SPORT OF GENTLEMEN!! THERE IS NO ROOM FOR HUSSIES!!!”
Stop the ridiculousness. Get Paige Duke her job back.
