2023 TEAM

Blaine and family started racing Kitty Cats in 1999 when he was 3 years old. After racing in the youth clubs for many years Blaine moved to amateur oval in 2008 and began racing Jr. Novice and 380 Sprint on a Wahl trailing arm chassis. After racing in the junior ranks for a few years Blaine began racing in the F-500 class in 2011 on a Wahl Bros. Racing prepped sled. That year Stephenson Racing won many races including the first of 3 in a row at Eagle River. Blaine continued to race the F-500 for the next 2 seasons winning at Eagle River 2012, 2013 & 2014, the Canadian Power Toboggan Championship in 2014 and many other notable events.
In 2015 Blaine graduated to the Champ 440 class on a WBR a-arm chassis with a Larry Rugland Polaris engine. That year was a learning curve for Blaine; he made all of the event finals he raced with the exception of the Eagle River World Championship. He received the TLR Cup Rookie of the Year award at the end of the season.
Blaine continued to advance in the Champ 440 class until a devastating crash that sidelined Blaine in 2017. Remarkably, in 2018 after a full recovery Blaine drove his sled to victory lane 3 times including his first World Championship win. By the end of the season Blaine had captured 2nd in the TLR Cup Points and Stephenson Racing was named Team of the Year. These results caught the eye of Durmont and Dave whom Stephenson Racing always had close ties to. In the fall of 2018-19 Stephenson Racing and Wahl Bros. Racing joined forces and began a streak of dominance in the sport.
Together since 2018 Blaine and the team have won 11 races including 3 straight World Championships at Eagle River (2019, 2020, 2021), beating the record of 2 straight wins by 8 other drivers and tying the record for most WC wins by a single driver.
