Visitors to Ford Speedway In Lights powered by TVA on Dec. 19 can meet 2013 Miss Food City, Alex Honeycutt, in her first official appearance in the role.

Honeycutt will meet with guests, pose for pictures and sign autographs during the evening. Children can register for the Food City Kids Club at the event as well. Miss Food City and the Food City Kids Club will be in General Shale Christmas Village from 6-8 p.m.

A Johnson City resident, Honeycutt earned the title during the Miss Food City Pageant in October and will kick off her year-long reign as Miss Food City Night at Speedway In Lights. She is a student at East Tennessee State University and plans to enroll in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program at Quillen College of Medicine upon graduation.

In 2011, Honeycutt served as Miss Johnson City and counts the Pat Miller Community Service Award among her many accomplishments.

She will represent Food City during its sponsorship of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Food City 500 on March 17 and the August 23 Nationwide Series Food City 250. Without a doubt, Miss Food City has become one of the most sought after titles for young ladies throughout the region.
