Miss Sprint Cup coming to Chicago (exclusive interview)

Miss Sprint Cup coming to Chicago (exclusive interview)
Kim Coon headlines the Miss Sprint Cup program in 2013. The Orlando, Florida native will be interacting with racing fans at the NASCAR Contenders Live at Navy Pier on September 12. This year’s event will feature the top 12 drivers on stage in Chicago to discuss the most competitive time of the season, The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. It's essentially the playoffs for auto racing. "For the fans who aren't as avid and maybe don't know how it works we have 36 races, with the first 26 being considered our regular season, and the last ten are considered the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup," she told me this morning in an exclusive interview by phone.

But the fact still holds, these media interviews were one-on-one Q&A. The interview subjects of the past year who didn't retweet me, after I nicely asked them to do so, were automatically eliminated from top ten consideration. But "Hey, thanks for coming!!!!" Stay tuned to CSMW this week as I will have exclusives with University of Illinois Athletic Director Mike Thomas and WFLD FOX Reporter Dionne Miller posted in the next couple days. The order below is totally random; these media interviews are not ranked by importance or page views or social media response. They are just the ten I enjoyed the most. (side note: here's my top ten media criticisms of the past year)...

Meet NASCAR Miss Sprint Cup Jaclyn Roney (Video)
Miss Sprint Cup is a NASCAR fan’s friend on the inside of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. There’s a lot more to the gig than meets the eye. A lot more. It’s the ultimate insider gig for racing buffs. This year’s Miss Sprint Cup is Jaclyn Roney of Ann Arbor, Michigan. (She also has an Illinois connection, as she has family in Batavia).
