Brain’s PAE built racecar
Lebanon Ford Performance- we had the pleasure to work with Brian and Paul Faesseler of Paul’s Automotive Engineering back in 2014. Paul called us and let us know that he and Brian were planning a new project and wanted to purchase a 2015 Mustang. We were extremely excited to partner with this outstanding engineering team that has solidified themselves as Ford Performance experts over the past two decades. The phone call took a surprising turn when Paul said he wanted a base V6 Mustang. Their strategy was to purchase the Mustang body and completely engineer the suspension and power train in house. That sounded crazy at the time, but we had no clue just how radical this car would become.
Brian blistering the track in his 2015 Mustang
A year and a half later, Brian’s Mustang is one of the fastest, if not the fastest Mustang in road course racing today. We just received word that the PAE team had an outstanding weekend to open the 2016 season. Saturday morning was cold with a slight mist in the air. Paul and Brian were geared up and determined to start 2016 with a bang; and did they ever…
Brian came out of the gate with the fastest warm up at the track which landed him on the pole position and the three second advantage didn’t stop after qualifying. Throughout the afternoon, he battled Aaron Quine and finished with a victory supported by a fifty six second lead. As Brian and his PAE powered Mustang ripped around the track, he lapped all but twelve drivers in the Super Unlimited Class, an extremely impressive accomplishment with over fifty drivers competing. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the father-son duo finished first and second in the Time Trial Unlimited. Brian’s 2015 Mustang finished a half second before Paul in his 1965.
Moving on to Sunday, the success continued as Brian took the pole position once again. As he tore down the home stretch, on the final lap, he had established another impressive victory. Once the dust settled and the smoke cleared, one thing was apparent; the two PAE powered Mustang’s were the fastest cars on the track that weekend.

Talking with Brian and Paul is always a rewarding experience. They possess genius levels of automotive, engineering knowledge and have the driving skills to back it up. Brian is honoring the family name well at only 24 years old. We are excited to continue this partnership to see what he can accomplish. Something tells us his future is bright.

The PAE race car was rocking the #KYLERSTRONG decal that weekend. We would like to take some time to send thoughts and prayers to the Bradley family. Kyler’s fight was more than strong. He inspired strength in not only his local community, but people all over the world. If you would like to help support his family, please visit their GoFundMe page.
