The 24-year-old phenomenon captured the world's attention as the first woman to ever lead the Indianapolis 500 last year. A shining star in a sport dominated by men, Danica was voted the Indy Racing League's 2005 "Rookie of the Year."

"Danica thrives on competition, speed and power. She is edgy, innovative and fun! All qualities we identify with at Go Daddy," said Bob Parsons, CEO and founder of, the world's No. 1 domain name registrar. "She is redefining racing and is appealing, no doubt about it," Parsons grinned. "She is definitely someone we want to be associated with at Go Daddy," Parsons said.

The petite speedster's combination of beauty and ability make her a hot commodity, evidenced by a recent guest hosting appearance on ABC-TV's The View and her televised presentation at the ESPY Awards.

Parsons promises, "You can expect to see Danica starring in a Go Daddy commercial early next year," but he wouldn't speculate about the Super Bowl(R).

Next season, Danica will drive the #7 Team Motorola IndyCar for Andretti Green Racing(R), which is owned by Michael Andretti, Kim Green and Kevin Savoree, and is the winningest team in Indy Racing League history.

A media event to unveil Danica's 2007 race car and to announce her new sponsors was held this afternoon at the River East Art Center, in Chicago. For more information on how you can get video from the event, please contact [email protected] or call 480.505.8800 ext. 4435.
