Customer Spotlight: Brian Grennell and his 2008 Kenny Brown-equipped Roush 427R Mustang
Brian Grennell, a Spokane, WA native, competitively raced karts up and down the west coast in his younger years, so he’s familiar with racing on an open circuit.
Brian is a huge fan of the 2005–2009 Mustang body style, resembling the original pony car, and for years the Roush 427 Mustang was an inspirational purchase. After a lot of searching he found an example of the car that met his scrutiny, a pristine white with contrasting blue stripe 427R in Las Vegas, NV and quickly found himself on a one-way flight to Vegas.
He never really thought about taking the car to the track when he purchased it, but a trip to Spokane’s 2.3-mile road course changed his mind, or maybe just got him hooked enough to want more. It’s only a matter of time before the modification process begins after this, as we all well know, and Brian soon reached out to Kenny for help and advice.
Brian registered for Kenny’s 16-week Speed Therapy Academy, a virtual immersion learning program that teaches the fundamentals of vehicle dynamics and how to take the knowledge learned from the program to fine-tune your personal driving experience. Armed with the knowledge of car preparation, set-up, tuning, driving and troubleshooting he was now well on his way and with Kenny’s help had a plan.
Soon after, he installed the AGS 4.0 Rear Grip Kit for better handling and control, a great segway to help balance the car and improve rear suspension geometry. He’s also added Kenny’s Front Brake Duct Cooling Kit to help maximize stopping power. Now, and much like a kid circling their favorite toys out of a vintage Sears catalog, Brian has more plans for the car including Kenny’s Rear Diffuser, a GT4 Rear Wing, and advanced cooling to support his supercharged engine in open-track conditions.
While Brian’s Mustangsnoozes the winter away, his 2012 Ford Raptor comes out to play, and serves well doubling as a snowplow, but he’s also gotone of Kenny’s favorite fast pickups in his stable, a second-generation Ford Lightning proving Brian bleeds Ford blue through and through.
