This is the Statt Mann Baby. It's time to Scatt a little bit.

Good news and bad news for American Tanner Foust over the weekend.

He got his first win of the season in the Global Rallycross Championship with a dominating victory in Las Vegas Saturday night. The win also gave him a special three race championship with one round to go in the full GRC season.

All that’s a good thing because competing in Las Vegas meant Foust couldn’t protect his second place in the European Rallycross Championship at the ERC finale in Germany.

And the only series of things to boot him from second unfolded like a script in Germany. Brit Liam Doran won moving him ahead of Tanner to second in the final standings. Russian champion Timur Timerzyanov, curiously, had a problem in the third heat and didn’t even make it to the A Main final.

Frenchman Davy Jeanney, the only other competitor who could challenge Tanner for second, finished second to Doran in the A Main but couldn’t pass Tanner into third in the final standings.

It’s not easy to win and lose on two continents in the same weekend.

In more ways than one, I guess you had to be there.
