Few things make us happier than the notion of turn-key race cars. In a world where large corporations are increasingly risk-averse when it comes to their products, we take private glee in knowing that if we had the means, we could go out and buy a ready-for-battle race car straight from Ford. We aren't talking about some high-strung quarter-mile Mustang, either. The Ford Focus ST-R is built for laying waste to your favorite road course as you do battle with the bruisers in the Grand-Am ST and SCCA World Challenge TC series. Now Tanner Foust has set out to give the five-door a quick thrash around Homestead-Miami Speedway.

What did the racer-turned TV personality think? Foust spends plenty of time expounding on the virtues of the Ford Racing program and the importance of having a small-displacement race car in the company's stable. Hit the jump to check out the video for yourself.
