Danica and Michael Andretti ponder the mysteries of what makes web hosting so sexy.
Danica Patrick inked a deal with Andretti Autosport and GoDaddy.com as an IndyCar driver for the next three years. There was no official word on her plans to race part-time in NASCAR’s Nationwide Series as well. However, we did get a painful re-statement of the obvious from GoDaddy CEO Bob Parsons:
“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. Not to mention she’s edgy, smokin’ hot and as tough as any competitor anywhere.”
Danica's New Car
Patrick’s not the only athlete GoDaddy tried to sign. We found these statement drafts in the company’s recycling bin:
“Usain Bolt is a very fast man racing against very fast people. He impressed us by running a lot of sprints because his velocity is as impressive as any runner’s.”
“Rafael Nadal is a powerful clay court player playing in a Roger Federer-dominated sport. He’s focused. He does all that he can to work on his overdeveloped left hand because that’s the hand he hits with. Not to mention that he does really well at the French Open."
Step up your Obvious Campaign, NASCAR, or Danica’s sticking with open wheel racing exclusively for 2010.
