Help me figure something out, anyone used a servo driver to control an ESC?

Hey guys, bit of an odd question and thought someone here might be able to help. I'm modifying a power wheels ride on toy and looking to replace the on off switch for power with a car esc.

The motors are not brushless and I think a pretty stock mabuchi style 540???

My thought is to use a brused ESC connected to a servo driver and then replace the dial on the servo driver with a horn of some kind linked to the gas pedal in the car.

Anyone know if this will work, and can anyone suggest what ESC might work? I would be powering with 3 6V sealed power supply batteries in series, so 18V, and then its driving two motors with a Y connector. I expect the AMPS to be in the 30-40 range max.
