Danica Patrick reunites with GoDaddy; still seeking Daytona, Indy rides


Danica Patrick has found a sponsor for the final two races of her career at this year's Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500. Instead, the company, which was once known for its risqué big game commercials, is reuniting with racecar driver Danica Patrick for her final races.

Patrick is now "getting much, much closer" to securing rides for the iconic events, she told For The Win in a phone interview Thursday. Chip Ganassi Racing and Team Penske, organizations that could have given her a seat in both races, have already essentially declared themselves out of the running, as has Roush Fenway Racing, sparing her a potentially awkward reunion with former beau Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Although many thought Patrick would team with Ganassi, or reunite with Andretti or Rahal, it's looking more as if she could end up with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing, a team that now only competes in the Indy 500.

GoDaddy won't return to the Super Bowl this year. "As we move forward getting into where I'll be racing, some of those things have come full circle, so that kind of goes back to letting the universe take care of things and letting it happen".

Danica Patrick confirmed to Fox News that she was dating Aaron Rodgers.

Indeed, Patrick's new relationship with GoDaddy is not just race sponsorship.

Patrick admitted earlier this month she was finding it more hard than expected to find seats for both races, but the signing of a deal with GoDaddy now acts as a major breakthrough.

Her new arrangement should help her quest to find a auto to drive at Daytona on February 18 and Indianapolis on May 27. That presence will be based around Patrick's ongoing business ventures. "She's passionate, tenacious and creative just like so many of our customers who are also looking to leverage the power of the internet and turn their "side hustle" into a full-time business".

No announcements were made regarding which team or teams that Patrick will drive for at either Daytona or Indianapolis.

"The first step to good vibes is to recognize that you want it, then go get it", Patrick said.
