Mark Faul began his racing career by participating periodically in high school drag races in 1984. He won his first race in 1989, and the following year won his first race for track points in a 1951 Chevy. He is active in both the NHRA and IHRA series', and in 1996, converted his 1966 El Camino into a Super Stock car. In 2000, he bought his current SS car, a 1998 Grand Am. In 2004, he purchased a 1969 Chevelle, which he runs in the Stock class.

Throughout his career, Faul has had 14 national NHRA wins, and has come in as runner up eight times. In IHRA, he has four national wins under his belt, with five runner up finishes. Among Lucas Oil Division races, he has had eight wins, 13 runner up finishes, and five division championship wins, four in SS and one in Stock.

"I would have to say my biggest race career highlight has to be winning Indy in 2006 in Super Stock," says Faul, "but then winning Seattle, my home track in 2005 and 2008 were pretty huge too. Another big one was the Sportsnationals in Fontana, where I won SS and was runner up in Stock."

"I've used K&N products for years, and met Steve Williams at the races. Apparently he liked me and my operation enough to offer to help out with some product. It's been a good partnership!" Faul says that by using K&N products, he's confident that his engine is protected while racing and driving through the pits.

"There is a lot of dust at some tracks, and when I've run an air filter, I've seen that the engine looks much nicer when I do the yearly maintenance of re-ringing and bearings. Also, the oil looks much cleaner compared to before the filter from not swallowing so much dirt. The oil filters are very nice pieces as well. I've cut quite a few apart over the years, and the K&N oil filters have a very high level of quality construction. And they are so much easier to work with since they have the nut welded to the bottom of the filter! It's one of those-why didn't someone think of that sooner responses!"
