Stat geeks, rejoice! Staturday returns for the 2017 Red Bull GRC season, as we offer up key facts and figures through the entire year. Click here to bookmark the entire Staturday archive!

It wasn’t the same course layout, it wasn’t the same jump placement, and the Joker Lap was the longer route instead of a shortcut. But if nothing else, this year’s Red Bull Global Rallycross Seattle proved that when a driver finds his groove at a given location, it doesn’t matter what challenges you throw at him—he’ll find a way to overcome them.

At Evergreen Speedway last month, that driver was Tanner Foust, and he overcame everything from a disastrous doubleheader at Atlantic City the previous month to an outside starting spot on Sunday’s final grid to sweep Rounds 10 and 11 of the 2017 season. Behind him, though, only one other driver has managed multiple podiums at the series’ lone Washington stop, and even Foust hasn’t earned a pole yet at the track despite winning all three finals.

We’ve put together numbers for the seven Supercar drivers who have run all three Seattle rounds over the past two years. See where your favorite driver stacks up here:
