What did you want to be when you were going up?
Professional Race car driver! I’m pretty sure it’s In my fifth grade yearbook I need to try and hunt it down.
If you could go anywhere in the world, all expenses paid for you and one guest for two weeks. Where would you go? Who would you bring?
Somewhere warm definitely. I love doing anything out on the water or going to the beach. I’d probably bring my friend Michael, at this point since I’m single [Laughs] he’s been my best friend since middle school and we always have a blast with whatever were doing.
What is your favorite movie(s)?
Anything funny. If I’d have to say favorite it would probably be something with Danny McBride in it. He’s hilarious.
Everyone has a guilty pleasure, for some its a chick flick movie they like, or a certain book they have read, or an artist they jam out to when their friends are not around. What is Matt Waltz guilty pleasure?
I don’t really know about that. I don’t listen to anything sad or soft if anything the weirdest would be disco music from back in the day. I listen to it more jokingly with friends though.
Speaking of jamming out, what style of music is on your presets in your street car?
It’s always changing but I listen to a lot of older rock like Lynyrd Skynyrd. I’ll listen to more country in the summer and more alternative rock in the winter.
Tell me something that is on your bucket list to do.
I’d love to travel around. I’d also like to go on a week or so hunting and fishing trip and bring as little stuff from the modern day as possible. I feel like that would be a challenge having to hunt and fish to eat. It would be fun.
Besides racing of course what are some of your hobbies?
Boating and doing anything fun with my friends from school.
Do you have any nicknames on or off the race track?
Matteo, off the racetrack came from college days.
What is Matt Waltz favorite flavor of ice cream?
Chocolate ice cream with cookie dough in it like a blizzard from DQ or somethin. That or instead of cookie dough, Reese’s in it!
