Simon: What was it like doing the driving stunts for The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift?
Tanner Foust: It was awesome driving in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. It was my first chance to work with some of the top stunt coordinators in the movie business and that movie was the first time drift racing had been shown on film to a large audience so it was very cool.

Simon: You also did some of the stunts for the Dukes of Hazzard movie. That must've been a lot of fun.
Tanner Foust: It was. Driving was such a big part of that movie and when I was a kid, I always used to stay up late to watch the The Dukes of Hazzard TV series, so it was pretty surreal to be driving the General Lee in the movie.

Simon: Who's your favorite Duke boy?
Tanner Foust: I would have to say Bo because it seemed like he always got to drive. But when I was watching the show as a kid, I was at the age where I always had a real thing for Daisy Duke as well.

Simon: If you could take a drive with any girl in the world, who would it be?
Tanner Foust: Probably Danica Patrick. I've seen her come out of a 180 mile an hour slide and then post her fastest time, so I think she�s got amazing skills. I'd love to drive with her.

    Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.

    Well I'm in 6th grade this year and next year in seventh grade I'm going to try out for cheerleading... The problem is I cant do a cartwheel or any of that! So I have to cram all of this stuff into just one year, all help is appreciated.
