This is the Statt Mann Baby. Time to Scatt a little bit.

In the past 16 years we’ve seen incredible changes in motorsports. That includes all-wheel drive, turbocharging, hybrids and more.

Steph PapadakisOne thing that hasn’t changed, though, is the excellence of Stephan Papadakis. I’m an unapologetic fan of Steph. Have been for a long time.

When we went on the air Steph was ruling the sport compact drag racing wars. But the same bulldog excellence that made him the fastest front wheel drive drag racer in the world has now put him at the top of the Formula Drift camp.

Papadakis Racing is the only crew that’s doubled down on a championship getting titles for Tanner Foust in 2007 and 2008.

Last year the team backed Fredric Aasbo to a title and has him within three points of leading the series with three events left in the championship including Monroe, Washington in two weeks.

A championship this year would make Steph and Papadakis Racing the most successful team in the thirteen years of the sport.

Hope they get it…
