Paige Duke, a former Miss Sprint Cup, is now a contestant on the latest season of “Sweet Home Alabama” on CMT.
This time, women from big cities and small towns are vying for the affections of Tribble Reese, the handsome former Clemson quarterback and entrepreneur from Birmingham who was the runner-up in the series’ first run. Included in the Country Girl lineup is former NASCAR spokesmodel, Paige Duke. In each one-hour episode, set in the charming city of Fairhope, Alabama, ladies from across the country compete for time with this southern gentleman, while each week, Reese is forced to say goodbye to more bachelorettes in his search for true love.
The show started last week but if you missed the first episode you can watch it here and there are 8 episodes in total, so get back on track this Thursday at 9pm EST. Follow what’s going on with the show, and find out how Paige is doing, through the show’s Facebook and Twitter pages. When tweeting be sure to use the #SweetHomeAlabama hashtag.
Paige isn’t the only Miss Sprint Cup (former or otherwise) to be on a reality TV show. Current Miss Sprint Cup Kim Coon was on this year’s season of “The Bachelor.”
In other news…
— As I told you last week, Jeremiah Weed, sponsor of Matt Kenseth at Talladega, put out the word that they were offering up free tattoos to fans at the track this past weekend. Turns out they got exactly 17 takers! How perfect is that since it’s Matt’s car number.
The turnout inspired Jeremiah Weed to increase their donation of $100 for every tattoo inked to an overall sum of $5,000 to The Air Force Enlisted Village charity. The Air Force Enlisted Village is committed to providing safe, secure and dignified homes for indigent surviving spouses of retired Air Force personnel.
Not only did fans get tatted, but so did Matt’s spotter, Mike Calinoff. Check out the photos below.
