Racing star Danica Patrick will co-host the American Country Awards on Dec. 10, reports the Associated Press.

She will perform co-hosting duties with Trace Adkins for the ACA's, which will air on Fox from the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas.

Patrick has not won this season and is 26th in points in the Sprint Cup Series.

“I’m so excited to host the American Country Awards with Trace Adkins,” Patrick said in a statement. “I have no doubt he’ll be able to keep up with me. I’ve become a huge fan of country music since I came to NASCAR and have been fortunate to be in videos with Miranda Lambert and Colt Ford. This is going to be a really cool experience and I’m excited to be a part of it. It’s going to be a great show!”

More from the AP:

Patrick says she's become a fan of country music since she joined the NASCAR circuit, and she's appeared in videos with Miranda Lambert and Colt Ford.

Adkins' new album of Celtic-infused Christmas carols, "The King's Gift," comes out Oct. 29.
