NASCAR driver Danica Patrick will be appearing alongside Sonic the Hedgehog in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, according to an announcement made by SEGA during E3 2012.

Known for her talents behind the wheel, Danica will be a playable character with customized vehicles in SEGA's upcoming new racing game where players speed across land, air and water in fully transforming vehicles. Gamers will get the chance to test their racing abilities as Danica against an All-Star cast of SEGA characters including Sonic, Knuckles, AiAi and others.

"It's a very exciting experience since I'll be sharing the screen with such an iconic character," said Danica Patrick. "I cannot wait for gamers to jump into my customized, transformable vehicles and give Sonic a run for his rings this holiday season."

To further enhance this partnership, Danica will be racing in a custom No. 7 Sonic the Hedgehog Chevrolet, fielded by JR Motorsports, during the O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge on November 3 at the Texas Motor Speedway (to be televised live on ESPN). The race, part of NASCAR's Nationwide Series, marks Sonic the Hedgehog's NASCAR debut.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, and PC Digital Download this holiday season.
