GoDaddy gets Darlington sponsorship
INTERNET COMPANY TO PRESENT MAY 9 SOUTHERN 500 NASCAR RACE
When the green flag flies at next month’s NASCAR Spring Cup series race at Darlington Raceway, one of the Internet’s most noticeable companies will be out in front.
GoDaddy.com has been chosen as the presenting sponsor at the May 9 Southern 500.
Track president Chris Browning made the announcement Monday. The race was re-christened the Southern 500 last year after the contract ran out with its last sponsor, the Carolina Dodge Dealers Association.
The agreement is for one year. Browning would not say how much the deal was worth.
GoDaddy.com CEO Bob Parsons said Darlington’s history made it a great fit for his company, which among other things registers domain names and hosts and designs Web sites. [AP]
GoDaddy and racing go hand-in-hand, so this only seems natural.
Kind of like me and former GoDaddy spokeswoman Danica Patrick (pictured above). It’s true… our love knows no bounds. Naturally, I understand your jealousy.
