Some straight out refuse with a laugh while others dive right into the chorus of their chosen song.

His Karaoke song selection comes at the two-minute and 15-second mark into the three-minute video. See if you can guess his pick before watching the video.
“Who doesn’t love karaoke?” the Twitter post from Toyota Racing asks. “We know Kyle Busch’s karaoke song but what are other Team Toyota driver’s favs?”
Hilarity ensues as soon as the video starts as the drivers talk about their choice of karaoke songs. Bubba Wallace makes an interesting selection with the 1989 hit single from rapper Biz Markie “Just a Friend.” Wallace even sings a few bars from the hit song to the delight of NASCAR fans around the world.

Bubba Wallace is having a nice season in the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series, where he drives the number 23 Toyota for 23XI Racing. He is NASCAR’s only African American driver in the sport’s three national series. He sports the number 23 on his car as a tribute to legendary National Basketball Association player Michael Jordan. Widely considered one of the greatest basketball players to ever step on a court, Jordan owns the team that Bubba Wallace races for. Jordan, of course, wore the number 23 during his time with the NBA’s Chicago Bulls.
In recent months, Bubba Wallace has praised NASCAR for taking a stand on social justice issues. He specifically pointed to the league’s stance on disallowing the Confederate Flag at races as a positive step.
