Miss Food City 2009

This blog is an unabashed supporter of the greatest venue in sports: Bristol Motor Speedway. And to that end, there is an obligation to report the elevation of this year’s Miss Food City- destined to reign over this year’s race activities and ride in the giant grocery cart. We all loved Jennifer- but all things must progress. To that end, Miss Food City is:
When the moment arrived, it was Lindsey Lorraine Blevins of Wise, VA who was crowned 2009 Miss Food City. Lindsey is a 21 year-old student at the University of Virginia at Wise. “It’s an honor to be crowned with such a prestigious title” Blevins commented. “I’ve worked hard for this opportunity and I can now testify that the ‘third time’s a charm’. I am excited and looking forward to spending the next year with Mr. Steve Smith and the Food City family.”

Lindsey will represent Food City during the Food City 500 and the Food City 250 NASCAR events at Bristol Motor Speedway during 2009. In addition to those responsibilities, Lindsey will represent Food City at various other company events.

Lindsey enjoys fishing, running, water and snow skiing, attending church, volunteering, NASCAR racing and UT Football. Her volunteer efforts include helping to raise a great deal of money for the Speedway Children’s Charities. She is the first traditional college student in her family, and is currently completing an internship at Norton Community Hospital. She plans to graduate with honors in May 2009 with a B.A. in Biology and to pursue a second degree in nursing to become a health care provider in the Southwest Virginia area.

Can't wait for August!
