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.

"All 43 drivers will still be on the track battling it out, but the top 12 drivers are competing for points in the Championship, and this event gives fans the chance to see those top 12 drivers before they get started. It's the most competitive part of the season and actually my favorite time of the year," Miss Sprint Cup said...
