MyRide.com Celebrity Interview: Tanner Foust

29 08 2008

When the producers of Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift needed a stunt driver, they called upon Tanner Foust. When the director of The Dukes of Hazzard shot action scenes with General Lee, he called upon Tanner Foust. And when casting a co-host role for theAmerican version of the UK’s massively popular Top Gear, you got it…someone called Tanner Foust. What Tanner Foust can do with a car would make a grown set of tires cry, and the magic doesn’t stop when the Hollywood cameras quit; no, Tanner is one of the top drivers in the organized drifting series Formula DRIFT. With the 2007 Formula DRIFT championship neatly tucked underneath his firesuit, Tanner Foust is back at it again in 2008. With that, another MyRide With.

MyRide.com Celebrity Car Interview: Ashley Force

27 08 2008

Last week in the MyRide parking lot we had a Dodge Viper. Its 600 horsepower engine made it one of the most powerful cars we’ve driven all year. NHRA Funny Car pro Ashley Force’s Castrol GTX Ford has 8,000 horsepower. If her car could theoretically maintain its top speed of 330 mph over an extended period of time, Ashley Force could make it from Los Angeles to San Francisco in just over an hour. That said, her actual races rarely last more than 4.9 seconds; take that Michael Phelps. Not only has Ashley become quite accomplished racing for her father’s team, John Force Racing, but she has also gained much attention off the drag strip after two seasons starring on A&E Network’s Driving Force. Last year AOL even crowned her the “Hottest Athlete in Sports” (and yes that list included Amanda Beard, Maria Sharapova, and Danica Patrick). With that, another MyRide With.

X Games Champion, World Champion, U.S. Open Champion, ESPY Awards: Best Female Action Sports Athlete of the Year…should we continue? We could, because when it comes to wakeboarding, there are very few things Red Bull pro athlete Dallas Friday hasn’t conquered. How about the winningest female wakeboarder in history? Yeah, that would be Dallas Friday too. But what about when Dallas isn’t out competing on her own signature O’Brien wakeboard? It turns out her board isn’t the only customized ride she has. With that, another MyRide With.

MyRide.com Celebrity Car Interview: Courtney Hansen

We’d be willing to bet that very few alumni of FHM Magazine’s “100 Sexiest Women in the World” have also been featured with their cars in DUB Magazine, and we would almost guarantee that Courtney Hansen is the only one in that population that was once called by Hot Rod Magazine “the female face of hot rodding.” Intrigued? So were we. Courtney is a former co-host of TLC’s Overhaulin’, and is the current host of Spike TV’s PowerBlock every Saturday and Sunday. Courtney has a new show on Spike TV premiering on August 17th called Great Builds, and she was also a stunt car driver in The Dark Knight. Okay, we made up the part about being a stunt car driver, but that’s probably the only thing that could make Courtney Hansen any cooler. With that, another MyRide With. Continue…

MyRide.com Celebrity Car Interview: Oliva Munn

23 07 2008

Actress Olivia Munn is best-known for her current role as co-host of G4’s Attack of the Show. While we can’t back it with data, we’d guess she’s probably the most popular talent the channel has. In addition to her role on Attack of the Show, Munn is a successful model, having appeared in campaigns for Nike, Pepsi and Neutrogena. Olivia Munn has also been getting her Hollywood on with roles in the recently released horror-film Insanitarium, Rob Schneider’s upcoming Big Stan, and The Slammin’ Salmon (the next big movie from the guys who brought you Super Troopers). You can check her out too every day on G4tv.com’s daily vodcast, Around the Net. With that, here’s another MyRide With. Continue…





MyRide.com Celebrity Car Interview: Kyle Busch, NASCAR

9 07 2008

Kyle Busch is currently tearing up NASCAR as one of its hottest drivers. Just this past Saturday Busch took home first place at a Nationwide Series event held at the Texas Motor Speedway, dusting veterans such as Jeff Burton and Tony Stewart. When Kyle isn’t hitting the track, he finds time to support the Kyle Busch Foundation, which is dedicated to providing essential tools to less fortunate children throughout the country. Did we mention Kyle Busch is only 22 years-old? Continue…
