KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP)

Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. decided to test out their acting chops, and do a little flirting in public, for a new country music video that was released this week.

NASCAR's power couple has starring roles for Colt Ford's new single, ''Drivin' Around Song.''

In the video, Patrick and Ford are waiting for Stenhouse, playing an auto repair man, to fix their broken-down vehicle. Patrick flirts with Stenhouse and then steals a set of keys to an all-terrain vehicle parked outside, and then takes Ford on a spin through Mooresville, N.C.

Patrick said she was not acting when she flirted with Stenhouse, whom she's been dating for a while. ''When I look at him I smile,'' she said, ''so that was not hard.''

Patrick is certainly accustomed to mainstream spotlight. She's graced numerous magazine covers and been involved in countless photo shoots, not to mention prominently displayed in the sometimes racy Super Bowl commercials for her sponsor, GoDaddy.

The attention is a little more new to Stenhouse, a Sprint Cup rookie, which makes it a bit odd that he's the one who has to deliver some lines in the video. Patrick never speaks.

''When we got the call to do that I told her we had to. It was the first time I had ever done anything like that and you could tell it was a little nerve-racking,'' Stenhouse said. ''It seemed like everybody liked the video so far, so it was cool.''

Patrick said the filming was completed just a few weeks ago.

''It's cool to see it out. It was a lot of fun to do. It was a beautiful day in Mooresville that day,'' Patrick said. ''Those are the fun things that you get to do outside of the car. I enjoyed that, that was good fun and obviously I had a pretty hot mechanic working on the car.''

Ford, whose real name is Jason Brown, released his first album in 2008. He also co-wrote and originally recorded the song ''Dirt Road Anthem'' that Brantley Gilbert turned into a hit.

His style's a fusion of country and rap, and it seems to suit Patrick just fine.

''I grew up listening to rap,'' she said. ''I like rap, especially the kind of rap you can understand what he's saying. Putting a southern twist on it is good, so I like it. I like unique-sounding music and he definitely has that for country music.''
