Godaddy Girl Crashes in Last Lap of Her Inaugural Gatorade Duel Race

by Adam Strong in Categories: Up to the Minute

Not really a domain name story, but I was sitting in a sports bar for lunch today and noticed something pretty dramatic on the live broadcast of the Gatorade Duel races in Daytona. I’m no race fan but just as I looked up the pack of cars was coming around a turn after a previous wreck. I looked up and paid attention because I noticed the hard-to-miss bright green Godaddy car driven by Danica Patrick near the back of the pack and remembered hearing something about this being one of her first races.

A few seconds later and suddenly Danica’s car goes screaming across the infield and slams the front passenger-side of her car in to an infield wall.   It’s a pretty big smack, but she walks away . Too bad for Danica that the wreck puts her at the back of the pack but at least her sponsors are getting some more “screen time” and she’s still alive.

Check out the video at NASCAR.com at about the 1:40 mark. and her reaction on the events here.
