Danica Patrick isn’t going to put her feet up and relax when her first season in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series ends.

The driver, who has brought sex appeal to racin’ and GoDaddy ads to Super Bowls, will try her hand at entertainment, signing up to co-host the American Country Awards with Trace Adkins on Dec. 10.

“I have no doubt [Adkins] will be able to keep up with me,” Patrick said in a statement (via the Tennessean). “I’ve become a huge fan of country music since I came to NASCAR … This is going to be a really cool experience and I’m excited to be a part of it.”

This isn’t Patrick’s first foray into country music. She appeared in Miranda Lambert’s “Fastest Girl in Town” video and in another with Colt Ford.
