Now Shaun White will work on his driving ability with the help of BFGoodrich Tires. The "Upgrade to BFGoodrich" campaign featuring Shaun White kicks off at ESPN Winter X Games 15 in Aspen, CO.

Taught by BFGoodrich specialists and a group of professional drivers known as "TeamBFG," White is learning how to upgrade his driving performance, with all the action captured in a series of webisodes at www.bfgoodrichtires.com/shaunwhite

Highlighted throughout the webisodes will be thow drivers like White can upgrade their performance on BFGoodrich tires - from rally racing to road course technique - many of which can be applied on the everyday commute.

The first webisodes documents White's initial experiences. The first driver to show White what it takes to be a performance driver were Summer X Games RallyCar SuperRally bronze medalist and Formula Drift champion, Samuel Hubinette, and Rally America competitor, Lars Wolfe.

Techniques learned on day one include buckling a five-point harness; dealing with crushed cornering cones caused by a drifting Viper; and a considerable amount of shifting, cornering and burnouts.

In addition, Shaun and his brother Jesse designed the appearance of a Vermont SportsCar rally car he will use for training later this year. A replica of the White-designed vehicle will be given away to one lucky consumer. Details on the giveaway and other consumer prizes will be announced at a later date.
