Kate Upton Daytona

February 27, 2012 by staff 

Kate Upton Daytona, Move over, Danica Patrick. There’s a new woman turning heads in the NASCAR garage. Supermodel Kate Upton, who was born in St. Joseph, was at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday, serving as grand marshal for the Daytona 500 along with her “The Three Stooges” co-star Jane Lynch.

Upton grew up in nearby Melbourne riding horses but has come a long way since.

She landed the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue released this month and has modeled for Guess, Dooney & Bourke and Victoria’s Secret.

She was a big hit among drivers, crew members and race fans.

Upton and Lynch took part in the 500 to help promote their upcoming movie. They play nuns in the movie, which is scheduled to be released April 13. Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos and Will Sasso star as the Stooges and were selected to drop the green flag.

“It will introduce the Stooges to a new generation,” Lynch said. “It’s very much like the series, except it’s not shot in black and white. All the colors are muted. Even though it takes place today, it looks like it was shot back then.”

Lynch also raved about Upton and offered a hint about what moviegoers can expect from Upton’s role.

“She’s very game,” Lynch said. “There’s a great shot when she comes out of swimming pool. She plays a nun, but she does emerge from a swimming pool in an interesting get-up.”
