Shawn Johnson Dancing with NASCAR and Kyle Petty

Olympic Gold Medalist Shawn Johnson went from winning “Dancing With The Stars” to “Dancing With The Cars” at the 50th running of the Coca-Cola 600. After joining NASCAR® fan favorite Kyle Petty for a few heart-pounding 160 MPH laps in an actual race car, she stuck the landing on a celebratory back flip. Johnson has been named an Honorary Race Official for the 50th Coca-Cola 600 at Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C.

I think it’s really cool that a 17 year old is able to do all of these cool things. Shawn Johnson must be having the time of her life. These are memories she’ll be talking about for the rest of her life.
