All summer long, we kept Ford Mustang fans posted on the hot racing action Paul Brown has put down in the #50 2012 Mustang BOSS 302S racer and now, he’s got even more to be proud of. Brown recently placed first in the 2011 Pirelli World Challenge Race, solidifying the GTS Championship title. Just one more race remains in the 2011 season, but Brown has already matched honors with the legendary BOSS 302 racer, Parnelli Jones–if he gets one more “W” in his final race at Road Atlanta, he’ll get to scribe his name in the books of Ford Mustang racing legends.
Awesome. We saw Tiger Racing’s Mustang in action back in June at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit and seriously, it put a good hurting on the track. Brown’s got some good mojo going behind the wheel of this 2012 BOSS 302S and we wish nothing but the best for him & Tiger Racing.

The BOSS is Back!Paul Brown Pilots the #50 Mustang Boss 302S to His Fifth Pirelli World Challenge Race Win of 2011 Season, Clinching GTS Championship
Covina, California (21 September 2011) – By winning his fifth race of the season, Tiger Racing’s Paul Brown has secured his first SCCA Pro Racing Pirelli World Challenge GTS Championship title. With one race left on the schedule, Brown has matched Parnelli Jones’ 1970 record setting SCCA Trans-Am Championship season also in a production based Boss 302 and looks to beat it by winning the final race of the year at Road Atlanta. After 40 years, the Mustang Boss 302 is again flexing its muscles and tearing up the tracks in SCCA’s professional road race series.
Paul Brown and the rest of the Tiger Racing team began the year on a race-to-race basis, but in demonstrating determination, hard work, passion and commitment, they gathered momentum and support from all corners. New sponsors have been added each weekend, but none more historic than Kenny Brown Performance.
Paul’s racing career started under his Dad’s personal instruction in a Kenny Brown Mustang at Topeka’s Heartland Park in the early ‘90s and Paul has been campaigning cars ever since.
“All of us at Kenny Brown Performance have enjoyed watching Paul race this year,” says the elder Brown, “As a racer, I’ve been pulling for him and his Tiger Racing team. As a father, I’m proud of the way Paul has handled himself, both inside and outside the car.” Kenny also said, “Paul has been providing me with valuable information and testing data on our new line of Kenny Brown suspension products for 2005 and newer Mustangs. I’m happy we are able to showcase the Kenny Brown Performance brand and help Paul in the last two races of the year.”
Tiger Racing’s Crew Chief, Adam Cox, was quite candid when asked how he felt about winning the GTS Championship. He said, “I honestly knew we could do this. My only fear was that we wouldn’t have the funding, but I never doubted our crew.” Adam went on to say, “SCCA doesn’t always make it easy. I think they could revamp the way they ‘equalize’ the field, but this season was a lot of fun. I called it way back at the SEMA Show in November and we did it.”
The Boss is back indeed!
