Paige Duke Inappropriate Photos May Have Cost Her 'Miss Sprint Cup' Job

Paige Duke was suddenly and surprisingly relieved of her Miss Sprint Cup duties late Wednesday night – and some inappropriate online photos from her days as a Clemson University student appear to have been the cause.

The web site CaptainThunderRacing.com posted the photos on Saturday. The graphic photos – apparently privately sent by Duke for private purposes – emerged on an anonymous message board earlier in the week, and users posted more pictures on Wednesday afternoon.

Sprint would not say whether the photos were related to Duke's dismissal, but it posted an update on the Miss Sprint Cup Facebook page Wednesday night that said Duke was "no longer with the Miss Sprint Cup team."

The status update said:

Hey fans, Paige Duke is no longer with the Miss Sprint Cup team. We wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors. Thank you for your continued support of the Miss Sprint Cup program as we continue to bring you closer to the NASCAR action each and every week.

Sprint had no further comment beyond the Facebook status update.

Duke had been a Miss Sprint Cup since the start of the 2010 season. The other current Miss Sprint Cups are Monica Palumbo and Kim Coon.
