Their sponsorship marriage lasted for quite some years, with Danica Patrick starring in thirteen GoDaddy Super Bowl commercials including daring ads where Patrick was shown wearing nothing but a towel. As one of the world’s largest cloud hosting providers, GoDaddy is now teaming up with Danica Patrick again for her final two races, being dubbed the ‘Danica Double.’
GoDaddy and Danica will work together again with primary sponsorships in both the Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500. The ‘Danica Double’ will mark an end to what is considered the most successful career of any woman in racing history – and the beginning of Danica’s next chapter as an entrepreneur and business owner.
In addition to the high-profile race sponsorships, GoDaddy is supporting Danica’s life-after-racing by powering the online presence for her business endeavors related to health, apparel and wine – all of which are enriched with her brand and GoDaddy’s “savvy in helping people turn their business dreams into reality” by supporting them with cloud services globally.
No. 7 GoDaddy Chevrolet
When Danica gets to Daytona, not only will she have a familiar car number, but she’ll also have a familiar face atop the pit box as crew chief Tony Eury Jr. will return to the NASCAR Cup Series garage to take the helm of the No. 7 GoDaddy Chevrolet team. Eury Jr. previously served as her crew chief when she raced in the NASCAR Xfinity Series from 2010 to 2012.
“I keep saying, I couldn’t have written a better story about how this would all fall into place – going with the flow is working out beautifully,” said Danica Patrick. “I’ll be back in GoDaddy green, driving the No. 7 Chevrolet with Tony Jr. in my ear again. It all makes my last NASCAR race just that much sweeter.”
Tony Eury agrees. “It wouldn’t be just any opportunity that could coax me back to the pit box, working with Danica and GoDaddy again at Daytona is going to be fun – when you can do what you love and be in your element … well, I can tell you, it doesn’t get any better. Danica and I have shared success before in Daytona, and she has a lot more experience under her belt now, so I look forward to seeing what we can achieve during Speedweeks.”
GoDaddy and Danica are teaming up with Premium Motorsports for the Daytona 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. The one-race deal will put Danica in the same car number she competed within her first foray into stock car racing at Daytona in 2010.
Premium Motorsports recently purchased the assets of Tommy Baldwin Racing. The NASCAR Cup Series organization will utilize the charter held by the No. 15 entry to field the No. 7 GoDaddy Chevrolet at Daytona. As a result, Danica will be guaranteed a starting spot in the 60th running of the ‘Great American Race.’ The No. 7 GoDaddy Chevrolet will be powered by ECR Engines, which have earned more than 250 wins, including two Daytona 500 victories. In addition, the team will receive engineering support from Richard Childress Racing.
With less than a month to go before the Daytona 500, the race team, based in Mooresville, North Carolina is working to put the finishing touches on the No. 7 GoDaddy Chevrolet.
“We’ve been working on this behind-the-scenes for a while,” said Premium Motorsports team owner Jay Robinson. “Now that we’ve finalized the deal, we’re 100 percent focused on getting the No. 7 GoDaddy Chevrolet ready for Daytona. Our team finished eighth in Daytona 500 last year and I know everyone here at Premium Motorsports is prepared to give Danica the best opportunity we can to get another great result as she runs her final NASCAR race.”
“Positive vibes definitely play into on-track performance, and I’m feeling good energy with the sponsor and team we’ve put together for Daytona,” added Danica Patrick. My Cup career started out with Tommy (Baldwin, through a partnership with Stewart-Haas Racing) and to end it working with him, GoDaddy and the team at Premium (Motorsports), it’s crazy to see how things really have come full circle. It just feels right to be back in the No. 7 GoDaddy Chevrolet again. It’ll be a great combination to close out this chapter for me. I’m convinced that good vibes translate into performance – and I’m definitely feeling the good energy with this sponsor and team. I’m ready to get back in the No. 7 GoDaddy Chevrolet.”
