Talladega Superspeedway’s Kristi King Honored in Sporting News’ Annual 50 Most Beautiful People of NASCAR
Talladega Superspeedway Senior Director of Communications and Consumer Marketing Kristi King was listed among Sporting News’ annual 50 Most Beautiful People of NASCAR this year.
Talladega Superspeedway President Rick Humphrey said, “Kristi is very successful in her career and has positively touched the lives of many in and out of the sport. We are blessed to have her not only as part of our team here at Talladega, but as our friend.”
King reflected on her career for the article, stating, “Racing has allowed me to travel to places I may have never visited and has afforded me the chance to experience new opportunities. I love the fact that my job presents a new challenge every day; and it’s never the same old thing. I’ve met some of the most wonderful people who have become my very best friends. Racing isn’t just a job or a career, it’s a way of life.”
King was among a list of other NASCAR personalities including drivers Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards, media reporters Shannon Spake and Marty Smith, and Hollywood celebrities such as Kevin Costner. In compiling this year’s list, Sporting News received input from readers, fans and those who cover the sport. The editors considered fan favorites and sponsor favorites and gave them points, and they also awarded points to “those were making waves in the sport.”
