NASCAR star Danica Patrick ventures into the world of video gaming

Posted: Updated:

Danica Patrick is known for her talents behind the wheel, but now the NASCAR star is venturing into the world of video gaming.

She will appear alongside Sonic the Hedgehog in SEGA's Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.

CBS Atlanta's Jennifer Banks spoke with Patrick about the game's release.

Patrick said she is excited about working with the famous characters from Sonic.

"The transform part is what is cool about the game. Your car transforms from the road to the air, or to the water," explained Patrick.

The racer played video games as a child and thought it would be awesome to be a part of this project.

As the holiday season approaches, Patrick said she is looking forward to less stress.

"I feel like I'm trying to just get through the work of the year. Patrick said. "I've got today and tomorrow and then I can go holiday shopping and get everything in order."

She doesn't plan to do any baking this holiday season.

"If I have to time it and add the ingredients in the right order it's not for me," she joked.

Patrick said in her free time it's nice to not feel pressure or stress.

It really has been a busy year for Patrick.

In November, the racer announced on her Facebook page that she is ending her marriage with Paul Hospenthal.

"This isn't easy for either of us, but mutually it has come to this. He has been an important person and friend in my life and that's how we will remain moving forward," she wrote.

The post received more than 7,000 comments, mostly from supportive fans wishing her luck.

You can follow Patrick on Twitter or on Facebook where she posts daily.

You can also try the game out for yourself on Wii, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS and other gaming systems.
