Throughout the years he has fielded championship race teams for many of the sport's greatest drivers. He has built Stanton Racing Engines into one of the world's premier engine shops, operating out of a 24,000 sq. ft., state of the art facility.

Stanton credits a lot of their success to the partnerships they have formed over the years with both MOPAR and Toyota Racing Development. Stanton Racing Engines developed the MOPAR Sprint, Midget, and Silver Crown engines that are being used today. Along with the MOPAR engines designs, Stanton’s also re-designed the TRD midget engine and made it one of the most competitive engines on the circuit.
