Paul Brown Ends GTS Championship Winning Season on Podium

Braselton, GA – Tiger Racing’s Paul Brown finished his Pirelli World Challenge GTS Championship winning season on podium, placing third in the season ending, Road Atlanta Grand Prix. The crew was excited to add a third place trophy to the multiple 1sts and 2nds won this year and for the fact that Brown has matched Parnelli Jones’ 1970 record setting SCCA Trans-Am Championship season also in a production based Boss 302.

While the team was a bit disappointed with their qualifying position, a season low of 7th due to traffic, starting from further back in the pack allowed driver, Paul Brown, to win the Optima Batteries Best Standing Start award. Brown also laid down the fastest lap of the race in the #50 One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning/Luminox/Kenny Brown Performance Ford Mustang Boss 302S, adding to an impressive list of stats for the year, including 5 wins, 10 top ten finishes, 9 top five finishes, fastest lap in 7 of 12 races and more laps lead during the season than all other GTS drivers combined.

When Paul Brown was asked how he feels looking back on the year, he said, “I’m thrilled to end the season on a high note, but I don’t think it’s all sunk in yet. This has been a dream season for me and, I think, for the whole crew and everyone else involved.” Brown went on to say, “Winning a Championship in the series that I essentially grew up in, means the world to me. I even met my wife racing in this series! It’s just been an awesome ride.”

It’s claimed that a team is like a family often enough that it may sound like a cliché, but new sponsor John McCarthy, a representative of One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning, insists that this is absolutely true of Tiger Racing. He said, “I’ve known Paul and his father Kenny for a very long time. Paul wrenched on cars that I bought from his dad many years ago and my son, John Jr., worked with Paul in high school at Saleen’s shop when they ran cars driven by George Follmer and Parnelli Jones.” McCarthy and Brown reconnected only recently when John Jr. began racing a Mustang. John Sr. said, “It’s been wonderful for everyone, not just personally, but also for One Hour Heating and Air. I know they will be very pleased with our results as this team represents all factions of One Hour. Planning ahead is important in any successful venture. Build your plan, work your plan and that’s what this team does. We proved we could compete with high dollar teams. Not just compete, but beat them. I’m glad I was able to be a part of it.”
