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

Rhys Millen’s Formula Drift win in Las Vegas Saturday night must have been pleasant satisfaction on a number of levels.

When he debuted his Hyundai Genesis Coupe at Las Vegas two years ago he didn’t qualify for the round. That triggered a long string of frustration and development time on the car getting it ready for competition.

Many in the field were turning to simple fixes. They were bolting in V8 crate motors, mostly from Chevrolet, building garage monsters with gobs of horsepower that they tried to harness with suspension changes or tires or nerve.

Millen, on the other hand, stayed with the Hyundai V6, and ignored all those whispers that maybe Rhys was finished after winning the 2005 Formula Drift title and the 2009 Red Bull World Championship.

Instead Rhys stuck with the plan, maybe the only one with a chassis and engine combination you can drive off the showroom floor, and he’s 11th in points even though he missed a drift round to compete in rallycross this summer.

In short, don’t you love it when a plan comes together?
