"Hinch" Wins His Career 1stIndyCar Race in Season Opener
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(Business Wire)--
James "Hinch" Hinchcliffe put Go Daddy in Victory Lane today with his first IZOD
IndyCar Series win. The Canadian superstar leaped out of his Go Daddy No. 27 car
waving a Canadian flag after running a brilliant race through the St. Petersburg
street course. 

Go Daddy`s Andretti Autosport crew went into the race with what they called a
"Hinchcliffe 2.0" strategy, focusing on restarts, aggressive passing and
fuel-saving and it paid off beautifully. "Go Daddy in Victory Lane in IndyCar is
so awesome - I want to thank the whole Go Daddy team," Hinchcliffe said
immediately after winning. "We just put our heads down and did it!" 

That positive, `never give up your dream` attitude is a fitting personification
of Go Daddy`s award-winning customer approach. "Hinch and the Go Daddy team were
spectacular today," said Go Daddy CEO Blake Irving. "There's nothing like that
first win. It's inspirational because it goes to show how important it is to
have big goals and never give up. Hinch represents Go Daddy and all of our
customers who believe in pushing to make their dreams come true." 

Hinchcliffe`s dream was realized in the adopted hometown of the late Dan
Wheldon, who signed to drive the Go Daddy car before his death in the 2011
season finale. Hinchcliffe will now be added to the Wheldon monument at Turn 10
on the race course. An emotional Hinchcliffe declared how special it was for
today`s victory to happen in St. Petersburg, "knowing my face will be on that
memorial … that`s really special." 

Go Daddy, the Web`s top platform for small businesses, has been a great fit for
Hinch, who is a tech savvy driver. He`s very active with his website,
Hinchtown.com, and social media accounts where he is known as "the Mayor of
Hinchtown." He has a sense of humor as well, joking about having "big heels to
fill" and wearing a "Danica wig" last year in a nod to Danica Patrick, who
turned over the Go Daddy seat when she transitioned into a full-time NASCAR

Today, the Associated Press referenced Hinch as the Canadian driver poised to
become IndyCar`s next big star. Performances like today definitely support that

Next up, Hinch drives the No. 27 Go Daddy Chevrolet in the Honda Indy Grand Prix
of Alabama April 7.
