NASCAR's Michael Waltrip is going 'Dancing With the Stars'

September 4, 2014

With two Daytona 500 victories on his résumé, we know NASCAR on FOX's Michael Waltrip can race. But can he dance?

We're about to find out.

On Thursday morning, ABC announced the celebrity cast for the 19th season of the network's hit reality show "Dancing With the Stars." The co-owner of Michael Waltrip Racing will be paired with professional dancer Emma Slater.

Waltrip will become the second professional race car driver to compete on the show. In 2007, three-time Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves took home the prized "Mirror Ball Trophy." 

Other celebrities include Duck Dynasty's Sadie Robinson, former "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" star Alfonso Ribiero, MMA champion Randy Couture and actor Tommy Chong (as in Cheech & Chong). 

The season officially kicks off Sept. 15.
