Two-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White wants to add performance driving to his resume. The action sports superstar has partnered with BFGoodrich Tires to produce the Upgrade to BFGoodrich, a series of webisodes that document White's experiences behind the wheel.

"I'm looking forward to a great partnership with BFGoodrich Tires," White says. "I've always been fascinated with cars, and I'm excited to work with the BFGoodrich team on my performance driving. His instructors will include Samuel Hubinette, Summer X Games RallyCar SuperRally bronze medalist, and Lars Wolfe, Rally America competitor.

In the meantime, follow White at the Winter X Games, today through January 31.
