To begin with, Danica moves over from Indy racing to America's racing major leagues, stock cars. And while her NASCAR career won't start this Saturday, her first stocker event is ARCA's season opening Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 in Daytona Beach (the NASCAR debut takes place on February 20th in California).

Then, on Sunday, during the 2010 Super Bowl television broadcast, Danica will be featured in two television commercials, one of which was just banned by CBS television network. purchased two Super Bowl advertising spots. The first spot will air the "Movies" ad, which was revealed last month and features Danica as Marilyn Monroe and revisits "Flashdance" and "Weird Science". The second spot was supposed to be "Lola," which is the story of a ficticious effeminate football player-turned-lingerie designer who turns to for help in organizing his online business.

Needless to say, the controversy has pretty much taken on a life of its own, and you could say that's CEO and Founder Bob Parsons has gotten his money's worth of publicity, even if the Super Bowl never gets played.

Since "Lola" was rejected by CBS, will instead air "News," a commercial that goes after the CBS decision and invites viewers to the website to see the banned spot, and more.

There's also an online-only commercial that asks viewers to vote for which Danica Patrick spot should be (or should have been selected) the first TV spot in the broadcast.

Additionally, we have a behind-the-scenes video of Bob Parsons and Danica talking about the making of the various commercials. So all in all, regardless of who wins in Daytona Beach on Saturday, or who wins in Miami on Sunday, Danica Patrick will feature big.
