Danica Patrick to drive pink car this month (photo)



Danica Patrick had a special shamrock paint job for St. Patrick’s Day and a patriotic new finish for 4th of July weekend. And in October Danica Patrick will trade her familiar GoDaddy green into for bright pink in order to help raise breast cancer awareness.

Patrick unveiled her new pink car on Tuesday in Times Square in a joint appearance with Chevrolet, which showcased a pink Camaro SS official pace car (pictured in the tweet).

Chevrolet will donate $200 to the American Cancer Society for every lap the pace car leads under caution at last month’s race at Atlanta and upcoming races at Talladega and Martinsville.

“The passion, the strength and the fight the survivors have really is inspirational. And getting the message out there is important. I have a friend from high school who took the breast cancer gene test six or seven years ago and it was positive, so she decided to have a double mastectomy,” Danica Patrick said.

“We’ve all been affected by it in some way or through someone we know, so it’s important to raise awareness and that’s why I’m proud to be a part of what GoDaddy and Chevy are doing. It was a great event on Tuesday.”


GoDaddy, the main sponsor of Danica Patrick,  is also teaming with the Public Interest Registry to donate $50,000 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Let’s just hope Danica Patrick can find a way to turn in better performances. She’s been finishing 29th, 27th, right around there a lot lately.
