You're in the camp of people who feel Ken Block has breathed new life into motorsports, saving it from extinction. You're in the counter camp who feels he's got no business in WRC, and bought his seat with cash instead of skill. Either way, you've only got part of the story.

Block opens up to Leo Parente on this week's Shakedown about his motorsports endeavors, talking about how he went from middling skateboarder and intermediate motocrosser to clothing mogul to WRC points-scorer — and some of the details of WRC competition that'll clarify some outstanding issues for rally nerds.

Maybe he even got to some of your questions he didn't have time to answer when he (and Segway dude) stopped by recently.
