Danica Patrick sticking with IndyCar and GoDaddy

01 December 2009 | Posted in Sponsorship, Motorsport, | By Michael Long

Danica Patrick, the most high-profile female racing driver in the world, will be sponsored by GoDaddy.com for the next three years after extending her contract with Andretti Autosport.

Patrick has long been expected to make the move into Nascar, but appears set to remain with the IndyCar Series for at least the near future.

"Danica is a beautiful woman competing in a male-dominated sport. She's passionate. She's focused. She’s all about doing what it takes to win and we love that about her," said GoDaddy CEO and founder Bob Parsons to Sponsorship News.

Patrick will race in the 2010 GoDaddy.com No. 7 car, painted bright green and orange. It was unveiled in New York's Times Square this week.
