Tanner Foust joins Nexen Tire
Multi-time champion returns to Formula Drift for select events in 2016
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (March 22, 2016) – Rockstar Energy Drink driver Tanner Foust has a new tire partner onboard for his return to three Formula Drift rounds in 2016. Nexen Tire will back Foust and supply tires for the Rockstar Energy Drink / Nexen Tire Volkswagen Passat for the select Formula Drift season.
“The cars on the Formula Drift circuit are some of the wildest motorsport builds on the planet right now and maximizing grip is a critical part of having the right package,” said Foust, who will compete in the Atlanta, Seattle and Texas rounds this year. “I’m excited to be working with Nexen in 2016 with a very competitive tire.”
The driver made his first appearance under the new partnership at the Leadfoot Festival, a special invitational celebration of cars and speed hosted annually in New Zealand by celebrated rally champion Rod Millen.
