Los Angeles—It seems “Playboy” founder and hall of fame ladies man Hugh Hefner has found something to occupy his attention since being jilted by his fiancee Crystal Harris last month. Rumors are flying out of Los Angeles that “Playboy” will be teaming up with Richard Coal Extraction out of Richard, West Virginia to sponsor a NASCAR Sprint Cup car next year.
A source close to Hefner with intimate knowledge of his business dealings said the gentleman’s magazine is very close to closing a deal with the coal company.
“They’re like, days away from saying something,” the source said on the condition of anonymity. “It will be soooo cool. I’ve ridden in one of those NASCAR cars before, and it was really, really hot. I don’t remember the driver’s name, but he was pretty cute.”
