Tanner Foust is a superstar in the art of drift racing and an X-Games regular, taking rally and rallycross gold medals in 2010.
A rare racing scholar, Foust graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree in molecular biology. He has used his skills as a stunt driver on such films as The Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift, Iron Man 2 and The Dukes of Hazzard. In addition to competition, Foust presents car programmes on American television including work as one of the hosts of the USA version of the seminal UK car show Top Gear.
Foust made his ROC debut at London’s Wembley Stadium in 2008, partnering Carl Edwards for Team USA. On that occasion Foust was a late replacement for Travis Pastrana, who suffered a hip and ankle injury. But he made a big impression, defeating current F1 world champion Jenson Button in the individual event.
Foust made his return last year in Beijing, this time alongside an injury-free Pastrana. The pair made the ROC Nations Cup semi-final.
