The winner of the 2011 and 2012 Red Bull Global Rallycross championships, Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross’ Tanner Foust remains a title favorite every year, and a top pick for the win every time he hits the track. Last season, he became the first driver since 2013 to take five race wins in the same year, sweeping the final three rounds of the season to come within 19 points of teammate Scott Speed for the Supercar championship.

It’s hard to imagine, but despite nearly going a perfect 30-for-30 in heats in 2016, Foust may have even been better in 2017. The numbers show another dominant season for the four-time Fan Favorite Driver of the Year:
