I know Tanner Foust is busy filming for Top Gear USA, Formula Drift, Rallycross, and who knows what else but the Americans were listed today for Race of Champions and I noticed Tanner Foust was missing off the list. I know in 2008 he was a substitute in for Travis Pastrana but I am bummed we cannot watch him do battle against F1 stars (and win) again this winter. The American team is currently going to be Carl Edwards and Travis Pastrana. The event will take place November 27th-28th which is just after Thanksgiving.

Tanner Foust is just collecting wins all over the place in rally racing this year. After a double gold medal week at X-Games he kicked off Rallycross with a victory. He has one amazing For Fiesta that let him take home another win to kick off this new Rallycross season. He is stacking up an impressive resume of wins this year and has to be looking at a Formula Drift championship to finish off 2010.
Tanner Foust is gearing up for Rallycross in New Jersey this weekend according to Ford Racing. The X-Games Ford Fiesta will be put back to use as he gears up to compete in the United States new series this weekend. Here is what Tanner Foust had to say about the event;
“It’s an incredibly challenging and aggressive sport,” said Foust, who has been competing in European championship events this season in the RockStar Energy Drink Ford Fiesta. “The action is non-stop and the fans can’t get enough of it. I often say it is like driving in a real life video game.”
