GoDaddy, the world’s largest technology provider dedicated to small businesses, is looking to spotlight three important non-profit organizations in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup All-Star race Saturday. Fans can help make it happen by going online and voting for Danica, between now and Friday.
If voted into Saturday’s race, Danica’s No. 10 GoDaddy Chevrolet will be decked out with an all-star non-profit logo lineup, all in support of education. The three organizations are the Boys and Girls Club of America, which helps promote youth development, the SCORE Foundation, which provides free small business advice for entrepreneurs and DonorsChoose, a group that promotes education for K-12.
“I think it’s pretty cool for GoDaddy to devote so much time and money to not only support these outstanding organizations, but to donate the No. 10 GoDaddy car to the cause in such a high-profile race,” Danica said.
The race draws an intense following with nearly 4 million viewers set to watch Saturday’s race. The official vote tally isn’t being made public, but Danica is considered a top contender. She competed in her first All-Star race last year by way of the fan vote where she completed more than 100 laps and finished 20th. Danica is also in an elite class of 14 drivers to have ever led laps at both the Indianapolis 500 and the Daytona 500. She’s also the first woman in history to lead laps at Talladega.
“To see Boys and Girls Club logo on Danica’s car in this race would raise awareness for our organization as we enter into a critical out-of-school time period,” said Boys and Girls Club of America National Vice President, Corporate Partnerships, Chad Royal-Pascoe.
SCORE Foundation executive director, David Bobbit said, “We love that GoDaddy goes beyond just writing a check and is injecting such creativity into the process … I hope everyone goes online and votes because being involved in NASCAR like this really will make a difference. We think it helps attract a whole new audience to our cause.”
“This unconventional partnership with GoDaddy and Danica through NASCAR’s All-Star race reflects the same creativity and fun we help teachers bring into the educational process,” said DonorsChoose.org founder Charles Best.
GoDaddy is donating $10,000 to each non-profit organization and encouraging customers to chip in as part of the GoDaddy Round-Up program, which gives customers a choice to ‘round up’ to the nearest dollar on the purchase for a non-profit organization.
You can vote here NASCAR.com/SprintFanVote every day, up until Friday at 7 p.m. ET.
