Scott Atchison had been SCCA Formula Ford champion in 1985 and had moved into FSV in 1986, ending the season as rookie of the year. He started the 1987 season driving for Dominic Dobson before moving across to Bill Simpson's team. Atchison won four races, but more importantly he finished every race well inside the points, and this kept him ahead of his nearest challenger, Dave Kudrave.
