  For better or for worse, Danica Patrick was the face of IndyCar the last seven years.
 The series' star despite limited results, Patrick caught the eye of the causal sports fan - often to the detriment of the other drivers. Now that she has moved on to NASCAR, IndyCar has a wide-open opportunity to fill the void she left behind.
 
As the series prepares for Sunday's season opener in St. Petersburg, the spotlight is finally shifting.
 
Penske Racing driver Will Power says the series needs "10 Danicas, not just one person who holds the series up, but 10 people who are very popular."
 
 Patrick's GoDaddy.com sponsorship now goes to James Hinchcliffe, last year's rookie of the year who replaced her in the Andretti Autosport ride.
