Go Daddy will be the primary sponsor for 20 races in the 2009 Nationwide Series. Back for another season is NASCAR’s most popular driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr., who designed the No. 5 GoDaddy.com Chevrolets for the 2009 Nationwide Series season.
“I’m happy to be partnered with GoDaddy.com again, and I appreciate the much larger role they are playing in our organization this season,” said Earnhardt Jr., who also owns JR Motorsports. “I look forward to seeing Brad drive the Go Daddy car this season in both the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series.”
