SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug 02, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Watch out! GoDaddy.com now has a NASCAR victory to go with its IndyCar victory already this season. Ron Fellows drove the No. 5 GoDaddy.com Chevrolet to Victory Lane after winning today’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal, Canada.
This was Fellows’ first time behind the wheel of the GoDaddy.com sponsored race car and the first NASCAR win for Go Daddy. Go Daddy Girl Danica Patrick made history this year being the first woman to win an IndyCar Series race by winning the Japan 300.
“First – I want to thank Dale Earnhardt Jr. and GoDaddy.com,” said an emotional and elated Ron Fellows after winning the rain-shortened race. “This was good fun. Now I need to beg Dale Jr. to let me run next week.”
Fellows took over the lead thanks to some strategic pit stop planning. He then led the historic race, this is the first time Nationwide Series has run rain tires, by more than 45 seconds when it was called due to extremely low visibility.
“It’s exhilarating Ron Fellows brought the No. 5 GoDaddy.com Chevrolet to Victory Lane,” said GoDaddy.com CEO and Founder Bob Parsons. “All the pieces just came together…the race was in Canada, Ron is a Canadian fan favorite and he’s a road course expert.”
GoDaddy.com is the sponsor of the No. 5 GoDaddy.com Chevrolets in six of this season’s Nationwide Series races. Earnhardt, a GoDaddy.com spokesman and NASCAR’s most popular driver, designed the No. 5 GoDaddy.com Chevrolets along with racing the car April 5 in Texas. Earnhardt will take the wheel again at the Watkins Glen next Sunday, Aug. 9. Mark Martin then pilots in Michigan Aug. 16 and in Kansas Sept. 27.
