Cielo Garcia is the former girlfriend of NASCARNextel Cup driver Jamie McMurray. The pair met at Rockingham in February of 2002 when Jamie was driving in the Busch Series. They hit it off, struck up a phone relationship and eventually started dating.
By October of that year, their relationship was serious enough that the Miss Winston was forced to choose
between her job and her boyfriend when he moved up to the Cup Series. Cielo chose Jamie and they dated for a couple of years.

She once said this...
I feel uncomfortable [about my race] when I hear people make unnecessary remarks, but
most of the time I just feel angry that people haven't been taught
better. I have been ashamed at who I was a long time ago. It was hard
to learn to be proud of my cultural background. ~ Cielo Garcia, Albuquerque HS, Albuquerque, NM [360°/angles, Spring 1996]
