Proving that there's no such thing as "concrete" good news for the IndyCar Series when Danica Patrick is involved, Patrick's official website gave eagle-eyed visitors a glimpse of the tiny speed diva's plan of attack for the future in advance of an official announcement.

The image, part of a Flash loading screen, shows Patrick wearing a racing suit - not surprising considering that only hours before her handlers had rolled out the official news of her three-year deal with Andretti Autosport and GoDaddy.

What is a bit surprising is that Patrick is clearly wearing the wrong suit. Wrong, that is, for a driver whose primary focus is supposedly her IndyCar career.

Anyway, we post this for your convenience to prove that, in fact, it is possible for Danica's new GoDaddy colors to possibly look uglier.

    FYI: They changed it, It now clearly has a Honda logo and ICs logo. Who knows though...

    Can you say a "happy accident" (courtesy of IMG to keep a deal alive).

    I like Danica, but if someone of Juan Montoya status says balancing BOTH taxi cabs & Indycars is TOO DIFFICULT for even him.... Come on girl, get real.

    Very wiered, wonder where the Chevy photo came from?

    HMMM. Where would the Chevy / Danica image come from? Photoshop is not that complicated to use after some good training tripleleague

    We'd like to see Danica run Indy and Nascar just for the hell of it.

    I don't see how Danica is going to be able to concentrate on two drastically different races at the same time; it will be interesting to see how her joining the Dale Jr. team works out
