Frankie Muniz's 2-year-old son Mauz is following in his dad's footsteps.

On Tuesday, Muniz, 38, who is a professional racecar driver, shared an adorable photo on Instagram showing Mauz in the driver's seat of a toy car, while the actor sat in the back.

Mauz had his full attention on the road, with him clutching the wheel with both hands while the Malcolm in the Middle star smiled for the camera.

"This Uber driver was having a hard time keeping the steering wheel straight and spoke a really weird language. 😅 I can’t believe Mauz is turning 3 in a few days!" Muniz captioned the cute shot, referencing the toddler's birthday on March 22.

Muniz partly has his son to thank for his racecar driving career. Despite having driven competitively for years, it wasn’t until he and his wife Paige Price welcomed Mauz, their first child, in 2021 that the actor began chasing his childhood dream more seriously.

Muniz explained to PEOPLE in January 2023 that Mauz inspired him to pursue his dream of racing in a series. "It hit me when I had my son," he said.

"I want him to grow up seeing me reach for my dreams and work hard for something that I'm passionate about, and the one world where I feel like I still have unfinished business was the racing world. So I'm going to go racing," Muniz continued.

Honestly, I didn't know it was possible to love anything as much as I love him. It took me a long time to post because I've been 1000% obsessed with him, already striving to make every moment he lives on earth the best it can possibly be."
