Certain races are circled on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule each year including Daytona, Indianapolis and Darlington, among others.
Say the words “Bristol Night Race,” and drivers, crew members and fans immediately think of one of the great spectacles on the Sprint Cup circuit. The .533-mile Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway is a sight to behold with 160,000 seats wrapped around the track in what may well be the modern day Roman Colosseum.
Danica Patrick, driver of the No. 10 GoDaddy Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), experienced her first Bristol night race last year as she made just her fourth career Sprint Cup start. It was a respectable outing for Patrick as she was in the top-20 and on the lead lap with 66 laps remaining when her car was hit by another car and contacted the SAFER Barrier on the inside retaining wall of the frontstretch. She finished 29th.
One night earlier, in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race, Patrick started 34th and finished a solid ninth.
The familiar green GoDaddy Chevrolet returns to Bristol this weekend, but with a bit of a different look. Outright.com, which provides bookkeeping for small businesses, will be featured alongside the GoDaddy logo on the hood and bumper of the car.
GoDaddy, which is expanding its focus beyond domains, websites and hosting to help small-business owners with challenges like bookkeeping and taxes, acquired Outright in July 2012 to better serve small-business owners.
Outright makes bookkeeping easy by automating time-consuming tasks like keeping track of sales and expenses and showing small-business owners their profit and loss. In addition, Outright eliminates the tax-time nightmare for small-business owners by organizing all the sales and expenses into IRS-approved categories and provides the tax worksheet they need to file.
