NASCAR Monster Energy Girls Try to Share Their Story.

When the Monster Energy Girls debuted last month in the week leading up to the start of the NASCAR season at the Daytona 500, racing fans were outraged over their all-black, corset-styled outfits – which became more revealing as the week went on – and took to Twitter to express themselves.
Criticizing the Cup Series’ new sponsor – which took over for Sprint this season – fans argued the women were dressed inappropriately for “a family show,” calling them “hookers” and demanding they wear fire suits instead.
Even some NASCAR drivers didn’t know what all the fuss was about.
So in an effort to tell their side of the story, Monster Energy released a video Thursday with the women being interviewed by Jamie Lynn Spears at the Auto Club 400 last weekend. It was as degrading as the Twitter comments – although not at first.
After hearing all the negative comments from NASCAR fans, Monster Energy Girl Mariel Lane described the experience as “disheartening.”
“We had so many fans coming at us with just like stereotypes and just really mean things to say based off of an outfit, which I didn’t even think was really that bad, especially if you look at other pro sports, such as the NFL and the NBA,” Lane said. “If you look at their cheerleaders – I used to cheer and, I mean, our outfits were way, way, way more revealing.”
