A Miss Sprint Cup from Lancaster has been stripped of her title after racy photos of her emerged online.
In January, NASCAR announced Paige Duke, a 24-year-old Clemson graduate, would not return for a second season as one of three Miss Sprint Cup representatives.
The job involves making appearances at racing and charity events and mingling with NASCAR fans. The attractive young women in racing-style fire suits often are seen smiling behind drivers as they celebrate in Victory Lane.
But about two weeks ago, Duke got a call from a Clemson classmate who said he’d received an email that contained what looked to be nude photos of her. He forwarded her the email.
“I just burst out into tears,” Duke said. “I couldn’t believe this was coming back from six years ago.”
