DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Monster Energy is the new sponsor for the NASCAR Cup Series this season, and the Monster Energy Girls captured the internet attention last weekend when they debuted days before the Daytona 500 on Sunday.
Specifically, their all-black outfits – which include knee-high boots and corset-style shirts – were declared inappropriate for the setting, and some would prefer them to wear fire suits instead of dressing like 渉ookers on a amily show. /p>
So why the internet freakout?
e live in a society where half of us think one way and half of us think another way – for the most part – about everything, 2010 Daytona 500 winner Jamie McMurray said at the Daytona International Speedway on Wednesday, noting he not sure why the women outfits caused such a stir.
not shocked at all that half the people didn’s like something about that and that the other half did. And I think if you ask any question about anything, you get about a 50-50 answer right now in the world we live in. /p>
As one person pointed out, women dressed similarly at sporting events, particularly NASCAR, is, as he put it, NothingNew. /p>
For the special few who were disturbed by the Victory Lane attire of the Monster Energy girls today, I offer a history lesson. #NothingNew pic.twitter.com/jxhKy4hYOI

No. 2 Team Penske driver Brad Keselowski offered another perspective. He acknowledged it hard for people to see certain situations from others points of view and said reactions to something like this are more reflective of the person reacting than of society overall.
His opinion has also strengthened since he had a baby girl less than two years ago.
hen you have kids and you start to see the world through their eyes because you’e raising them, you see how much differently we all look at the world, Keselowski said. ecause my daughter doesn’s see a scantily clad model – she just sees another person who wearing black or whatever colors or a lot of leather. She doesn’s see sex appeal. She a kid.
