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!

Few drivers have worked as hard to get where they are in Red Bull Global Rallycross as Steve Arpin has. Since joining the series in 2013 with an older-model car, he’s gone from a promising Supercar rookie to one of its top threats to win on a weekly basis. He even managed to give Chip Ganassi Racing its first Red Bull GRC victory in 2016, taking the win in Daytona on the same weekend the team brought the Ford GT back to the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Year after year, Arpin has found a way to improve on the previous season’s results. He grabbed his first podium in 2014, moved up in the points the next year, and had his best season yet in 2016. We’ve got all the key facts and figures from those three seasons right here:
