Analysts put her annual endorsement deals near $10 million, at the high end among women athletes such as Maria Sharapova and Venus and Serena Williams.

"We are thrilled to connect with our customers by partnering with Danica whose appeal goes beyond racing," Anita Sehgal, Academy Sports + Outdoors vp-marketing, said in a statement.  "Danica is a great fit for our brand because she appeals to both Nascar fans and also the active-minded families who are our core customers."
