Go Daddy girl and racing superstar Danica Patrick had a wreck at the Michigan International Speedway on Monday. While she has not updated her Twitter account or issued a formal statement, reports suggest that she is fine.

This was Patrick’s second crash in as little as three days. Here’s video from her crash at Saturday’s Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis:

The crash just happened to occur on the same day Go Daddy revealed that its CEO is stepping down from his position. Warren Adelman, who took over as CEO of Go Daddy, after Bob Parsons stepped down last year, says he wants to spend more time with his family. He will assume a new role as Special Advisor for Strategy and Global Policy at the company.

Scott Wagner has been named interim CEO, as the company’s Board of Directors searches for a new one.

As for Patrick, she was subbing for Tony Stewart in a Goodyear tire test in Michigan, according to The Detroit News. The test is designed to prepare drivers for the Pure Michigan 400 on August 19.
