Welcome to Off the Wall With…, where we ask your favorite drivers the same five questions that are… well, off the wall! We’ll check in with a different driver each week to get a peek into life outside the race car. This week, NHRA Funny Car driver Alexis DeJoria has the inside scoop.
What’s fun besides racing?
DeJoria: Going on adventures with my family. Going to places that we’ve never been and experiencing it together.
What’s the top item on your bucket list?
DeJoria: Bungee jumping. I’ve skydived and done all that but I’ve never bungee jumped.
Your go-to on movie night is:
DeJoria: Usually some type of horror film or sci fi. Something that keeps me from falling asleep.
What’s one item that’s always in your grocery bag?
DeJoria: Green drinks. Vegetable juices.
Most memorable fan interaction?
DeJoria: When I was in Top Alcohol Funny Car, it was in Pomona, I had a woman come up to me and she was so excited to meet me that she started crying. She was shaking and I thought “Wow!” It was such an honor that someone would feel that great about having a moment with me and it made me want to cry. That was a huge deal.
