A 16-year-old teen from Edmonton is competing Saturday in Florida's Daytona stock car race — and he doesn't even have an official driver's licence yet.
Foran attends Grade 10 at Jasper Place high school where he is a part of their elite athlete program, which provides support to students pursuing athletic endeavours outside of school.
He started racing in pro-karts when he five, according to his website. He started competing against adults four years later. By the age of 14, he was competitively racing full-size stock cars.
Last year, Foran was "the youngest Canadian to ever race in the World Series of Asphalt Racing as part of Speedweeks leading up to NASCAR’s Daytona 500," according to his website.
Foran wants to be the second Canadian to win a Sprint Cup, which is the highest class in NASCAR racing.
On Saturday, Foran is racing at the New Smyrma Speedway in Florida. Racing begins at 5:30 p.m. MST.
As for his Alberta licence, Foran says he'll be getting it next week.
