Today the folks at the Mustang Club of America revealed details about the upcoming 50th Mustang Birthday Celebration which will take place on April 17, 2014. In an effort to make it easier for Mustang enthusiasts to attend from places all around, the club will host two events that will run during the same 50th Anniversary weekend. One event will take place on the East coast at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina. The West coast event will take place at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event dates are Wednesday April 16, 2014 through Sunday April 20, 2014.
The club notes you do not need to own a Ford Mustang to attend, and you do not have to be a club member. That said, as a member of the Mustang Club of American, I think it's a great place to meet other enthusiasts. If you've ever thought about joining up, I strongly encourage you to do so!
In addition to the two events, the Mustang Club of America will also host several "Pony Trails", all leading to one of the two events. A "Pony Trail" is a group road trip to the show.
More details will be posted shortly at the club's official website, Mustang.Org. You can watch a video of the announcement here. I don't know about you, but I'm pretty excited about all this. I'm ready to start planning the trip and requesting those days off from work. See you in April 2014!
