Miss Sprint Cup Brooke Werner announced Wednesday on Facebook that she was stepping down from her duties due to personal reasons.

The former Miss Vermont USA was in her second season on the NASCAR tour.

Werner had filled the role of Miss Sprint Cup with Kim Coon and Madison Martin. This is Martin's first year of duty; it's Coon's fourth.

Miss Sprint Cup serves as the representative for Sprint, entitlement sponsor of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

More than just a presence in Victory Lane, the role of Miss Sprint Cup involves plenty of travel (Coon logged nearly 45,000 miles in 2013), and long hours at the track as well as off site. In addition to Victory Lane duties, the representatives spend hours at The Sprint Unlimited Experience meeting with fans, hosting driver appearances and taking part in various fan-related events. They also can be found in the garage throughout the weekend, interacting with fans and industry members and generating content for social media.

Below is the message Werner posted on Facebook.

"Hey fans, difficult decisions are always tough to communicate to people you love so much…like you guys. I recently made the hard decision to resign as Miss Sprint Cup for personal reasons (all good!) and hang up my firesuit. It's been one of the greatest times of my life and I have you all to thank for that. I'll miss you all very much but I know that you'll all be excited to meet the new Miss Sprint Cup soon!"
