USA Today asked Michael Waltrip twelve questions. Most of them are about racing, but, he answered some questions about Dancing With The Stars too. Awww, this guy is so fun and loveable. Hey, and how about those “lifts” Monday night? I want MORE!
Do you ever go back and watch the video to relive that moment?
I YouTube it a lot. (Smiles) That’s been fun over the last couple months with Emma (Slater, his dance partner). She wants to know everything, so we watch a lot of YouTube of two things: The ballroom dancing championships and a lot of racing.
I show her the All-Star Race that I won in ’96 and I show her the 2001 July race that Dale Jr. won. Those are probably two of my favorites.
Q: What’s a TV show you’re really into right now?
A: Dancing with the Stars. I’m literally into that show right now. I’m not only into it, I’m on it. (Laughs) It’s definitely my favorite show right now.
It’s funny – I watch dancing on YouTube and I look forward to practicing dancing with Emma. Life is going to change pretty dramatically one of these Monday nights when they tell me, “Go home.” Because if I’m not thinking about our race team and NASCAR and our boys over there, it’s dancing. One of those is getting ready to go away – maybe sooner rather than later, we’ll see. (Laughs)
