Dancing for Dale: Michael Waltrip honors Dale Earnhardt on ‘DWTS’

Former Daytona 500 winner Michael Waltrip honored his longtime friend and former car owner Dale Earnhardt on Monday night’s episode of ‘Dancing With The Stars.’

Waltrip had to pick his most memorable year, and the FOX Sports analyst picked 2001, the year in which he won the Daytona 500 and lost his best friend all in the same day. 

Before hitting the dance floor, Waltrip remembered the emotions of that day and explained the friendship he and Earnhardt shared over the years.
