She's only a 'little nervous' about it — but a leap between racing cars (albeit successfully!) and hosting an awards ceremony in front of millions of people?? We'd be filling our pants!!
Here's what Danica Patrick said about hosting the American Country Awards this year:
Tony La Russa's Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) is a wonderful organization!
Their purpose is to help as many shelter animals as they possibly can!!
Their mission statement reads:
"ARF saves dogs and cats who have run out of time at public shelters and brings people and animals together to enrich each others lives. ARF strives to create a world where every loving dog and cat has a home, where every lonely person has a companion animal, and where children learn to care."
But how will they spread their message of love and kindness to animals??
With the help of celebs!! They're releasing a calendar!
The calendar will feature some of our favorite celebs, including:
Aren’t rankings fun?! LOLz!
Every year athletes come and go, which means money within the sports changes around.
This year, we aren’t too shocked by who is number one, but what is surprising is who isn’t on this list, like Venus Williams!
It’s also crazy how many tennis players made the cut.
To see who is number one, check out the list (below)
When you think about it, The ESPYS are just like any other award show.
Except instead of actors and musicians, you have some of the best athletes in the entire world in attendance!
There was certainly no shortage of stars last night as some of the biggest names in sports made their way to the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles for the 20th Annual ESPY Awards!
Michael Phelps, Maria Sharapova, LeBron James, Danica Patrick, and many more athletes showed up to share some laughs and remember some of the most inspirational moments of the past year!
And just because they're athletes does NOT mean they don't know how to work a red carpet!
Ch-ch-check out some of the attendees making their grand entrances (below)!

By a show of hands, who here thinks Danica Patrick's boyfriend keeps doing something wrong, like checkin' out other girls, so Danica is exacting revenge on him by trying to take out his car during races??
Yeah, we don't either! LOLz!
In a weird series of events, though, we wouldn't be surprised if SOMEONE thought that was the case, because Danica started a three-car pile up by colliding with her boyfriend, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., … which is the THIRD TIME this has happened this season!
If you're thinking we mean that Danica Patrick was distracted by issues with her boyfriend which resulted in her crashing during the Coca-Cola 600… well, you're wrong! He was LITERALLY the cause of her dangerous collision!
You see, her boyfriend is driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr.! During lap 319, he bumped into her No. 10 Chevy and straight sent her into the back of Brad Keselowski's car! She and Brad sustained significant damage and had to take their cars behind the wall for repairs!
To Indy or to stock car? That is the question!
Danica Patrick WANTED to try and do the 'double' this year, which would have been both the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600, but that didn't happen. In fact, she decide that she needed to keep to her stock car career instead of trying to split her time between the two types of races. She is a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series rookie, after all!
Here's what she said:
