Stat geeks, rejoice! On Saturdays throughout the 2016 offseason, we’ll be looking back at top Red Bull GRC drivers’ performances over the past three years. Stay tuned for more Staturday Progressions posts and click here to bookmark the archive!

He’s one of Red Bull Global Rallycross’ most iconic personalities: known as “The General” for his accomplished freestyle motocross career, Brian Deegan has transferred from two wheels to four seamlessly in the latest phase of his impressive career. A championship-winning off-road truck racer, he’s also been a part of Red Bull GRC from the series’ first season in 2011, when he triumphed in the season finale on the streets of Los Angeles.

The past few years have seen Deegan go from a part-timer working out of his own pit to the top three in the championship with Chip Ganassi Racing—his best finish in four years. Today, we take a look back at his last three years in the Supercar class, and see just how big of a difference it makes for a driver to be at the track every weekend:
