Premier Swiss watch brand Tissot has announced the partnership renewal of its brand ambassador racing star Danica Patrick. She endeared herself to the world when she made history by becoming the first woman ever to win a race in the sport of U.S. open-wheeled racing by clinching her victory in the Japan 300.

In anticipation of the Indy 500 and to pay homage to Danica, the watch company signed a two year contract extension with the IndyCar(R) Series Star on Friday May 16, 2008.
