Orlando, Fla. (PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:AAI) , and Danica Patrick are offering one lucky winner and a guest the ultimate racing thrill in the "Ride Shotgun with Danica" sweepstakes.


The winner will be swept off to Miami via AirTran Airways for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ride shotgun with Danica Patrick in an official IZOD IndyCar SeriesĀ® pace car.

"I hope whoever wins is ready for the ride of their lives," said Danica Patrick. "AirTran may drive down fares but you haven't seen anything until you drive down the home stretch with me. Do pace cars come equipped with air sickness bags?"

In addition to screaming around the track with Danica, the winner and their guest will also get to take a spin in an Indy Racing Experience two-seat race car, enjoy a private breakfast with her and her IZOD IndyCar SeriesĀ® teammate, Ryan Hunter-Reay and be granted VIP access to the race and the Andretti Autosport hospitality pavilion.

People ready to ride can log onto through September 16, 2010, to register using their AirTran Airways A+ Rewards frequent flyer number.

For consumers that are not already A+ Rewards members, registration is free. Participants must be 21 years of age or older to be eligible. Complete rules are available at
