There was no other place for Michael Waltrip to go but home. After lasting an impressive eight weeks, the Nascar superstar, along with his partner Emma Slater, was voted off DANCING WITH THE STARS a week shy of the semi- finals. A dance off as to who would get three extra points may have hurt him in the DWTS dance race. The highest scoring couple of the night, Janal Parrish & Val Chmerkovskiy who earned a perfect 40, was immune to the dance off while the other six pairs competed against each other in either a Cha Cha Cha, a Rumba or a Jive. Tommy Chong & Peta Murgatroyd beat out Waltrip & Slater, while Alfonso Ribeiro & Witney Carson easily beat out Lea Thompson & Artem Chigvintsev. It ended in a tie when Sadie Robinson & Mark Ballas took on Bethany Mota & Derek Hough. Head judge Len Goodman had to make the final call with his vote, giving the edge to Mota & Hough. Six left…on to the semi-finals.
