Patrick talked about how she got the opportunity to be in the game.

"They were doing a racing game and they asked if I would be interested in being a part of it in character. So it's very cool be in a game and having been a kid that played games and to have that come around full circle is pretty neat to get the opportunity," Patrick said.

She talked about her thoughts on the game.

"Yea, I played the game. It's 'All-Star Racing Transformed' means that you go by land, by see, by air and I'm definitely the weakest in the water category so I need some there," Patrick said.

Patrick also talked about her transition into Nascar.

"Yea, it's obviously my first full-time year in Nascar. It's so nice to be welcomed like that from all of the fans. It was really really nice and flattering, so it was fun to be able to get that award. Thank you fans for voting.

She also refuted the rumors of her and "GoDaddy" parting ways.

"Yea, those were weird rumors. They're not true at all. [There] was a story that came out that made people have some questions, but no we are great and we have a long term deal. When we were racing in Phoenix a few weeks ago now at the end of the season. I was in Scottsdale at 'GoDaddy's' headquarters there and Bob Parsons, the CEO was doing a press conference with me and he announced that I will be in both super bowl commercials. So that was very flattering. We haven't shot them yet, but I'm excited to shoot them for sure," Patrick said.
