Thanks to some friends on Facebook for posting this link. Tanner Foust “retired” from drifting to pursue other projects.

Although, mine never went 332 feet, and I never had a 90′ tall ramp either.

Who doesn’t want to see one of the only authentic trolls that exist in this world, pop out of a ball and scare the shit out of every single person in Times Square!
I think South Park hit the nail right on the head with that girl, here it is….
