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.

    Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)
